Open Cosmics: cosmic-ray physics for everyone #260
[ Google Spreadsheet Row Number ] 249
The main goals of our session would be:
These will include:
Take Away: Contribution to a citizen science project, knowledge about Open Cosmics and cosmic rays.
Bonus Take Away: Access to the Grid, knowledge and technical know-how of extracting useful data from videos captured by cloud chambers and other devices.
The session will be in the form of a workshop, where there will be:
Take Away: Knowledge about Open Cosmics and contribution to the project.
The session will be about teaching participants about cosmic ray physics and encouraging them to contribute to it. Tutorials and videos will be prepared explaining how to use all aspects of the application, irrespective of the number of participants. With less participants, it would be possible to give more individual attention and the session can be more interactive instead of following an agenda, but even with more people we can still strive towards that aim.
Easy paced hands on about image analysis will invite many collaborators. The hands-on part of this session will not be very demanding making it straightforward for groups to follow, no matter the size. More participants would result in a larger contribution to our project on CrowdCrafting, resulting in more people being able to access the Grid and contribute to it.
After the session, participants will be able to:
