Neutrinos–Just Passing Through

Neutrinos are the most abundant particle in the universe, yet very hard to detect. Every second, trillions travel through you. What are they and what can they tell us about our universe?
High School

Students explore the properties of some of the universe’s most abundant, but least understood particles–neutrinos. Then they learn about the upcoming Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment at Sanford Lab, which will detect neutrinos as they oscillate their way through the earth from Illinois (and its accelerator complex at Fermilab) to South Dakota.
