Communications from CERN

Today I sat in on a Skype meeting between Dr. Karmgard, Dr. Loughran, Jill Ziegler and Doug Berry. Every week this group meets to discuss the work Doug is doing at CERN and how they can use information from CERN with grade school and high school students.
Doug is currently writing C++ code for the ECAL test beam at CERN. By creating beams with known particles he is able to test how the ECAL reacts to particles. Every week he corresponds with people here at QuarkNet on how this research can be used in schools to as examples of particle physics.
