Abstract Details (PID = P303)
Title:WS: Detect Cosmic Rays in your Classroom (P303)
Description:Students can engage in NGSS-aligned science by performing high energy experiments with classroom detectors. QuarkNet offers hardware and web-based software so that students can analyze cosmic ray data. The Cosmic Ray e-Lab website contains over 90,000 days of data uploaded by students; available to all. Attendees of this workshop will explore e-Lab, watch data analysis demos, and perform two kinds of measurements: the lifetime of cosmic ray muons and the average speed muons. Teachers will have an opportunity to obtain an e-Lab account. Physics teachers are invited to join one of the three QuarkNet Centers in Illinois (NIU, UC-Fermi, UIC), and obtain their own detector. (WORKSHOP - Requires Pre-Registration)
