COSM outreach and QuarkNet
Welcome to the homepage for COSM outreach and the Hampton University QuarkNet Center.
Our purposes are to:
We have been a QuarkNet Center since 2001, with teachers who continue to participate and regularly attend meetings, and more who follow our activities. The group built a cosmic ray telescope following the Berkeley design, but with the scintillation counters in separate boxes so that students could explore a variety of arrangements.
We estimate that over 2,000 high-school students have been influenced by this Center.
There have been significant spin-offs. One example is the Zambian outreach effort that involves several of the teachers. See below. Another is a program similar to QN at the elementary level.r See the 'Physics is Elementary' link.
