The events are counted if the charge is over the specified threshold at each bar end. - 00005 L4 bar: light yield measured at each end (red squares and blue solid circles) and the sum of the light yields measured at both ends (black open circles) as a function of the beam position along the bar. - 00016 Fitting of digitized pulse shape to obtain the timing mark. - 00012 Speed of light propagation $v_f$ in L2 fibre, for signals read by SiPM left (red line) and right (blue line); $v_f$ is measured as $(16.0\pm0.1)$ cm/ns. - Full text

STEAM Education and Communication with Art at ATLAS and CMS / Paolucci, Pierluigi (INFN, Naples) /ATLAS and CMS Collaborations
Recent developments in science education policy and practice suggest that successful learning in the 21st century requires the horizontal connectedness across areas of knowledge by linking the arts and humanities with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. The rapidly increasing STEAM movement calls for arts integration into science teaching and learning to help school students develop skills that are necessary to thrive in an innovation economy. [...]
