Quarknet Boot Camp at FermiLab

As part of the 8 week Quark Net experience, Brian and Chad attended a week long training session at FermiLab near Chicago, Illinois. They joined a group of teachers from around the country for training and classroom sessions covering the manufactuing, collision, and detection of subatomic particles in the Tevetron collider. Sessions included the construction and opreration of particle detectors, particle accelerators, and particle production such as the anti-proton source and neutrino beam. The links below will take you to the FermiLab site and from there you can access the world of accelerator particle physics.
