What does meteorology have to do with particle physics? In this workshop, participants will learn how a serendipitous observation led to the development of the cloud chamber particle detector by Charles Wilson (Nobel prize 1927), according to Lord Rutherford the most wonderful and original instrument in scientific history. Exploiting concepts such as condensation, evaporation, and super-saturation, participants will build their own cloud chambers and observe some of the natural ionising radiation surrounding us.

Objectives:
Pressure, states of matter; evaporation/condensation; electromagnetic spectrum,Particulate nature of matter; Energy; thermal physics; nuclear physics
