QuarkNet Supports Remote Analyses of Cosmic Rays for High Schools

QuarkNet High School students and teachers have collected data on cosmic ray muons. Their data is available to all on the site. QuarkNet has made available several experimental analysis tools to use with the existing 100K data files. In a remote learning environment, students can design their own experiment to measure fundamental properties like the speed or lifetime of muons, changes in the cosmic ray rate over time or with angle of orientation, or investigate the size of cosmic ray air showers.
