Cosmic Rays and the Sun

Students search for a specific data file in the Cosmic Ray e-Lab and look for evidence of the passage of the sun in the flux measurements derived from this file. 

CMS Data Express

CMS Data Express is a short investigation in which students inspect and characterize W or Z events from the LHC.

CMS e-Lab

Students have an opportunity to learn how to analyze data to calibrate the CMS detector and participate in discovery science (as particle physicists do).

Rolling with Rutherford

Students use statistics to make an indirect measurement they can easily confirm.

Cosmic Ray e-Lab

Students experience the excitement of scientific collaboration in this series of investigations into high-energy cosmic rays.

Quark Workbench 2D/3D

Students use Standard Model rules to build hadrons and mesons from quarks.

Calculate the Z Mass

Students use conservation laws and vector addition to calculate the Z mass from event displays.

ATLAS Z-path Masterclass

Students are physicists for a day at a university or lab where they work with physiists to how to analyze real particle physics data in the form of event displays.
