Shuffling the particle deck

Teams of students organize cards depicting fundamental particles based on their characteristics. This activity is a foundation for learning about the Standard Model and parallels the methods used by scientists to organize the elements into the period table.

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.

Quark Workbench

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