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...

Begun in 1998, this U.S.-based program provides opportunities for teachers to learn about and contribute to particle physics experiments and share what they learn with their students. This collaboration has yielded a variety of online instructional resources including raw datasets and derivative...

Portal to the Public began in 2007 with a grant from the National Science Foundation. It is a proven, scalable guiding framework for Informal Science Educators to engage scientists and public audiences in face-to-face interactions that promote appreciation and understanding of current scientific...

SEP was set up in 1998, by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. They develop high-quality but affordable equipment and publications in the United Kingdom- including booklets, CD-ROMs, interactive web-based projects and worksheets - all aimed at encouraging practical work in the classroom. Their...
