View Resource Fermilabyrinth

This collection of games and puzzles hosted by Fermilab is a good demonstration of many of the principles of modern particle physics. Topics include particle accelerators, calorimeters, particle counting and trapping, collisions, and particle signatures. Many games require a Shockwave plug-in and the site provides a link for downloading it.

View Resource Detector Detail

This game requires users to match the “shower shapes” and the energies of particles produced in a particle collision. There is also a movie (or animated gif) in the Calorimetry section which allows students to see the workings of the detector. It is part of a collection of games that allows students to explore concepts in particle physics.

View Resource Baryon Bonanza

This activity helps users understand the quark structure of elementary particles. Users choose combinations of three quarks to see what particles can be made. Click on the "Curious?" button reveals a number of interesting things about baryons, including information about making baryons, matter and antimatter, antibaryons, mesons, and hadrons.
