Summer Workshop 2013

June 24, 2011 - June 28, 2013

Teachers and students on analysis of CMS dimuon data using e-Lab. Students also performed four experiments using cosmic ray counters: muon lifetime, muon speed, cosmic rate rates versus time, muon absorption rates. Five high school teachers and twenty-two students participated. We visited Fermilab for a tour of the D0 experiment. We also had a tour of the visualization lab at the Adler Planetarium and saw a sky show related to our studies.. A returning workshop participant Derek Choi described his advanced cosmic ray studies of shower reconstruction at GBS. All students presented their results in talks to the whole group to close the workshop.
