Grades 9-12: After building a cloud chamber, students will visualize the paths of actual particles that result from cosmic rays.
PHYSICAL SCIENCES (Grades 9-12)
Cosmic rays are impacting our atmosphere all the time. These cosmic collisions produce large quantities of high-energy particles that are scattered in all directions, some of which reach us here on the surface of the planet. However, most people are unaware of this constant bombardment; the particles are often smaller than an atom, and they do not stimulate any of our senses. Using a cloud chamber, students can visualize the paths of actual particles that result from these cosmic rays.
