School implementation plan FHS Pratt
Use of Quarknet equipment and resources
1. Address measurement uncertainties through setup and data collection from a 24 hour run.
Time of flight analysis from 24 hour run data. Using distance, estimate average speed of particles.
Using known rest half-life, estimate depth in earth at which muon signal should disappear.

Texas Tech University June 13-14 Cosmic Ray Workshop Agenda
“Our mission is to create opportunities for teachers and students to explore the nature of scientific research. Using cosmic ray muon detectors, participants design and perform experiments to analyze data employing the cosmic ray e-lab.”
a. Configure a cosmic ray detector appropriately for acquisition of data for calibration and analysis of measurements.
