NGSS 2: Developing and using models
Students have an opportunity to learn how to analyze data to calibrate the CMS detector and participate in discovery science (as particle physicists do).
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.
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.
