  • Catch a Cosmic Ray Tour and Classroom Lesson

    Location:

    National Superconducting Cyclotron Lab, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan.

    Description:

    For those classes of physics students who want to go beyond the tour, here's a chance to delve into the problem of cosmic rays with a hands-on experiment. After being treated to a faculty discussion of the state of cosmic ray research, students will form their own hypotheses on the nature of cosmic rays and test them with directional detectors. This program includes materials for the teacher to use in class before and after visiting NSCL, turning it into a three-day lesson. JINA offers grants to fund all or part of the travel costs for classes participating in this program. Due to equipment limitations, up to 30 students can participate at one time.
