Developing and using models

CMS Masterclass J/Psi

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

Cosmic Muon Lifetime

Students learn how physicists measure muon lifetime.

Dice, Histograms & Probability

Students roll dice, record the resulting individual values as well as the sum of the values, create histograms of the data and develop insight into the concept of “degrees of freedom." 

Quark Workbench

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