What Heisenberg Knew

Heisenberg knew that, at the quantum level, we cannot know everything, at least not all at once. Students explore uncertainties in measurements of complimentary variables to find this out for themselves.

Mean Lifetime Part 3: MINERvA

Students collect data from muons which decay in the MINERvA detector in the Fermilab NuMi beamline to understand particle decay and determine the muon lifetime.


Use quantum physics and LHC data to estimate the size of the proton.

Making it ‘Round the Bend - Qualitative

Students explore the effects of electric and magnetic fields on particles.
