NGSS 1: Asking questions/Defining problems

Rolling with Rutherford

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

Making it ‘Round the Bend - Qualitative

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

Mass of U.S. Pennies

Students create and interpret a histogram of penny masses.

Cosmic Ray e-Lab

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

Calculate the Top Quark Mass

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

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.
