It's Electric!

Discover how the electromagnetic force is involved in neutrino detection by the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment detectors to be installed nearly one mile underground at the Sanford Lab.
Level
High School
Time required
A minimum of nine 50-minutes sessions

Discover how the electromagnetic force is involved in neutrino detection by the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment detectors to be installed nearly one mile underground at the Sanford Lab. Investigations begin with exploring the ghost-like nature of neutrinos, progress to explaining how scientists detect particles that rarely interact with matter, and conclude with students evaluating the choice of liquid argon as the detector medium and the overall worthiness of this international mega-science project.
