Gutowski, Bartosz; Józwiak, Witold; Joos, Markus; Kempa, Janusz; Komorowska, Kamila; Krakowski, Kamil; Pijus, Ewa; Szymczak, Kamil; Trojanowska, Malgorzata – Physics Education, 2018
In 2016, we (seven high school students from a school in Plock, Poland) participated in the CERN Beamline for Schools competition. Together with our team coach, Mr. Janusz Kempa, we submitted a proposal to CERN that was selected as one of two winning proposals that year. This paper describes our experiment from the early days of brainstorming to…

Çakir, M. P.; Acartürk, C.; Alkan, S.; Akbulut, U. – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
Multi-authoring has been gaining popularity since the foundation of academic publishers. Today we observe a global trend in favor of multi-authoring. On the other hand, in certain domains, such as CERN collaborations in physics, multi-authoring has a different connotation than other domains. The number of co-authors may be above 5000, an all-time…

Kurikka, Joona; Utriainen, Tuuli; Repokari, Lauri – International Journal of Learning and Change, 2016
This paper is based on work done at IdeaSquare, a new innovation experiment at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The paper explores the translation of fundamental research into societal applications with the help of multidisciplinary student teams, project- and problem-based learning and design thinking methods. The theme is…

Wheeler, Sam – Physics Teacher, 2018
In 2013, I was an Einstein Fellow with the U.S. Department of Energy and I was asked by a colleague, working in a senator's office, if I would join him in a meeting with a physicist to "translate" the science into something more understandable. That meeting turned out to be a wonderful opportunity I would never have otherwise had. During…

Broomfield, H.; Hirst, J.; Raven, M.; Joos, M.; Vafeiadis, T.; Chung, T. K.; Harrow, J.; Khoo, D.; Kwok, T.; Li, J.; Mandelstam, H.; Martin-Halls, J.; Perkins, R.; Singh, A.; Southwell, J.; Tsui, A.; Tsui, K.; Townsend, D.; Watson, H. – Physics Education, 2018
The CERN Beamline for Schools Competition gives high school students the opportunity to perform an experiment of their design using the T9 facility. Our team, 'Relatively Special', was fortunate enough to be joint winners of this global event and travel to CERN for a unique adventure. This paper gives an account of our story including the…

Lincoln, Don – Physics Teacher, 2012
This summer, perhaps while you were lounging around the pool in the blistering heat, the blogosphere was buzzing about data taken at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The buzz reached a crescendo in the first week of July when both Fermilab and CERN announced the results of their searches for the Higgs boson. Hard data confronted a theory nearly…

Wiener, Gerfried J.; Woithe, Julia; Brown, Alexander; Jende, Konrad – Physics Education, 2016
In the context of the recent re-start of CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the challenge presented by unidentified falling objects (UFOs), we seek to facilitate the introduction of high energy physics in the classroom. Therefore, this paper provides an overview of the LHC and its operation, highlighting existing education resources, and…

Kourkoumelis, C.; Vourakis, S. – Physics Education, 2014
This paper describes an interactive tool for analysis of data from the ATLAS experiment taking place at the world's highest energy particle collider at CERN. The tool, called HYPATIA/applet, enables students of various levels to become acquainted with particle physics and look for discoveries in a similar way to that of real research.

Alexopoulos, A.; Pavlidou, M.; Cherouvis, S. – Physics Education, 2019
In recent years the realisation that children make decisions and choices about subjects they like in primary school became widely accepted. The role of the primary school teacher as the main ambassador for a subject is therefore crucial in inspiring and enthusing the younger generation towards STEM. However, in most European countries, primary…

Cid-Vidal, Xabier; Cid, Ramon – Physics Education, 2018
Although for most of the time the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN collides protons, for around one month every year lead ions are collided, to expand the diversity of the LHC research programme. Furthermore, in an effort not originally foreseen, proton-lead collisions are also taking place, with results of high interest to the physics…

Jensen, Matilde Bisballe; Utriainen, Tuuli Maria; Steinert, Martin – European Journal of Engineering Education, 2018
This paper presents the experienced difficulties of students participating in the multidisciplinary, remote collaborating engineering design course challenge-based innovation at CERN. This is with the aim to identify learning barriers and improve future learning experiences. We statistically analyse the rated differences between distinct design…

Whyntie, T.; Parker, B. – Physics Education, 2013
The Timepix hybrid silicon pixel detector has been used to investigate the inverse square law of radiation from a point source as a demonstration of the CERN [at] school detector kit capabilities. The experiment described uses a Timepix detector to detect the gamma rays emitted by an [superscript 241]Am radioactive source at a number of different…

Charlton, Michael; Eriksson, Stefan; Isaac, C. Aled; Madsen, Niels; van der Werf, Dirk Peter – Physics Education, 2013
We describe recent experiments at CERN in which antihydrogen, an atom made entirely of antimatter, has been held in a magnetic minimum neutral atom trap and subjected to microwave radiation to induce a resonant quantum transition in the anti-atom. We discuss how this, the first experiment to observe an interaction between an antihydrogen atom and…

Johansson, K. Erik – Physics Education, 2013
With real particle collision data available on the web, the amazing dynamics of the fundamental particles of the standard model can be explored in classrooms. Complementing the events from the ATLAS experiment with animations of the fundamental processes on the quark and gluon level makes it possible to better understand the invisible world of…

Barnett, R. M.; Johansson, K. E.; Kourkoumelis, C.; Long, L.; Pequenao, J.; Reimers, C.; Watkins, P. – Physics Education, 2012
With the start of the LHC, the new particle collider at CERN, the ATLAS experiment is also providing high-energy particle collisions for educational purposes. Several education projects--education scenarios--have been developed and tested on students and teachers in several European countries within the Learning with ATLAS@CERN project. These…
