Cards represent the elementary fermions and bosons. Each particle has its own card which displays some information about its properties: electric charge, mass, lifetime, sensitivity to the weak and strong interactions. The game rules are those chosen by Nature (with some simplification when...

The website provides a summary of how teachers, physicists, education staff and exhibit professionals designed and built a permanent exhibition about Fermilab's science and technology. The story we wrote to guide our work is posted as are descriptions and photos of all the exhibits.

Students are given sheets with images of nearly 2-dimensional dimuon events from ATLAS and CMS. They use vector addition, conservation laws, and a little relativity to calculate the mass of the Z boson. In a classroom, students are encouraged to combine results to find a consensus value of the Z...
