Summer Workshop 2008
June 22, 2008 - June 27, 2008
Teachers and students assembled detectors and performed four experiments using cosmic ray counters: muon lifetime, scaling, muon speed and cosmic ray rates versus shielding. Nine students participated, and all presented their results in talks to the whole group.
Two students continued experiments over another several weeks, pursuing their own research idea to correlate the rate of cosmic ray muons with the atmospheric temperature.
