Meadowdale students visit UW Physics lab | School briefs

Mar 28, 2014

Sixteen students in the Meadowdale advanced physics class spent a Saturday at the University of Washington's physics lab, learning about high-energy physics experiments.

Students took a tour of the UW laboratories on Saturday, March 15 where muon detectors for CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) were designed and constructed. They also saw some of the detectors in use, as well as what the next phase of development will look like.

Meadowdale also participated in a teleconference with similar groups in Minneapolis and Mexico City, along with an LHC scientist in Illinois.

Students who participated in the trip include Chris Arthur, Kaung Aye, Nick Bartish, Annelise Blanchard, Novin Changizi, Kaylan Cummins, Kendall Devries, Megan Hoppe, Peter Kelley, Chris Lock, Micah Lund, Andrew McCoy, Tucker Newberg, Michael Savell, Courtney Shaw, Mark Steinke and Gregory Zacharia.
