Abstract

Teaching of modern physics requires nuclear and particle detectors that are not always available to high school audiences. A system which allows the measurement of the speed of muon particles detected in cosmic rays is presented. The system was setup at Frascati National Labs of the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and is being used for hands-on teaching. The system is being upgraded for operation in fully remote control thus enabling e-learning capabilities to a much wider target audience.
