PROJECT CODER (CMS Open Data EnviRonment) is a US-CMS Funded Education and Outreach project that aims to bring basics of programming and data analysis to high school classrooms. It focuses on high school teacher education and addresses the need for more programming and science in the classroom. Project CODER uses Jupyter notebook technology to interactively teach basics of programming and particle physics concepts at an appropriate level for high-school teachers and students. It focuses on the analysis of CERN Open Data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) located near Geneva, Switzerland.

As part of the project, there will be a series of Workshops around CERN Open Data Analysis in 2016. The Workshops bring together experienced teachers and undergraduates who will soon become high-school teachers. No prior experience with programming or particle physics is required. Participants of the workshops contribute original material that can be used as a basis for high school activities around CERN Open data and shared with teachers and classrooms all over the world.

Interested to Know More?

If you are a teacher interested in bringing exciting data analysis to your classroom, engaging your students in learning about data or conducting searches for new physics, you can register for one of our upcoming OpenData Workshops.
