Cern@school Becky Parker

  1. 1. Dr Becky Parker The Langton Star Centre Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys Canterbury, UK CERN@school, linked up through the Grid - when students get into real physics research
  2. 2. Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys (We have girls in the sixth form) Aim to give students opportunities to work alongside scientists and engineers so that they see the excitement and challenge involved and it encourages them into physics and engineering at University. Between ½ - 1% of the young men and women who go to University to study physics in the UK come from our school.

  3. 5. In 2007 on our CERN trip we visited the Medipix laboratories on site and met Dr Michael Campbell spokesman for the Medipix collaborations
  4. 6. ALICE detector
  5. 7. Space Experiment Competition December 2007 a team of sixth form students entered a National Space Competition run by Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd and the British National Space Centre.
  6. 9. Langton Ultimate Cosmic ray Intensity Detector Designed an experiment using Timepix detectors to collect cosmic ray data in Low Earth Orbit. Raised extra funding to space qualify the Timepix chips.
  7. 11. LUCID will fly on a Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd satellite TechDemoSat – 1 in early 2012. NASA would like a tap on the data University of California, Berkeley Space Science Laboratory 7 Gauss Way Berkeley, CA 94720-74 USA Commissariat à l'Energie  Atomique CEA Laboratory of Integration of Systems and Technologies (LIST) CEA/Saclay, DIMRI,  91191 Gif-sur-Yvette Cédex, France European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN Medipix Team 1211 Geneva 23, Switzerland Czech Academy of Sciences Institute of Physics Na Slovance 2, 18221 Praha 8, Czech Republic Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics (IEAP) Horska 3a/22, CZ-12800 Praha 2 - Albertov, Czech Republic Friedrich-Alexander- Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) Physikalisches Institut , Arbeitsgruppe SPOC Erwin-Rommel-Str. 1, 91058 Erlangen, Germany European Synchrotron Radiation Facility ESRF Instruments Support Group ISG BP 220, 38043 Grenoble Cédex, France Albert-Ludwigs- Universität Freiburg-i.B.
