A collection of Web-based games
and activities to develop an
understanding of the operations
and experiments that take place
in the Fermilab accelerator and
detector halls and the scientific
ideas they explore.
We implemented seven in
Shockwave Flash. I developed five
and mentored IMSA student Vishesh Narayen
in developing two. These activities correspond to hands-on exhibitis at the Lederman Science Center. Try playing some of the games.
We packaged Fermilabyrinth with the E=mc2 Activity and Anatomy of a Detector, a video developed by graduate student Liubo Borissov and the Education Office as a CD-Rom. Anatomy of a Detector, available online, features Joe Boudreau, a physicist who developed a virtual reality tool to display a collider detector and the resulting debris. The video is realvideo.
