Students have an opportunity to learn how to analyze data to calibrate the CMS detector and participate in discovery science (as particle physicists do).
The CMS e-Lab provides students with an opportunity to analyze data to calibrate the detector and participate in discovery science (as particle physicists do). Calibrating the detector to "rediscover" previous measured results is an important part of the early scientific activity at CMS. Later students will probe data where physicists expect to find answers to questions at the heart of 21st century particle physics. The CMS e-Lab addresses ALL science practices in the Next Generation Science Standards. Photo Credit: CERN, CMS
