Learning with the ATLAS experiment at CERN / Barnett, Michael (Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. (US)) ; Kourkoumelis, Christine (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Johansson, Erik Karl (Stockholm University (SE))
With the start of the LHC, the new particle collider at CERN, the ATLAS experiment is also providing high-energy particle collisions for educational purposes. Several education projects-education scenarios-have been developed and tested on students and teachers in several European countries within the Learning with ATLAS@CERN project. [...]

How 'Discover the COSMOS', 'PATHWAY', 'Go-Lab' and 'Inspiring Science Education' are changing the science education in European high schools / Kourkoumelis, Christine (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR))
It has been noted by various reports that during recent years, there has been an alarming decline in young people's interest for science studies and mathematics. Since it is believed that the traditional teaching methods often fail to foster positive attitudes towards learning science, the European Commission has made intensive efforts to promote science education in schools though new methods based on the inquiry methodology of learning: questions, search and answers. [...]

An advanced Go-Lab scenario for the GUI-based analysis of large samples of particle physics data / Kourkoumelis, Christine (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Fassouliotis, Dimitris (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Vourakis, Stylianos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR))
This contribution describes a new hands-on undergraduate laboratory exercise which aims to introduce students to the world of cutting-edge particle physics research. This is complementary to an exercise that was previously developed and was based on the virtual inspection of events recorded by the ATLAS experiment at CERN. [...]

HYPATIA—an online tool for ATLAS event visualization / Kourkoumelis, Christine (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Vourakis, Stylianos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR))
This paper describes an interactive tool for analysis of data from the ATLAS experiment taking place at the world’s highest energy particle collider at CERN. The tool, called HYPATIA/applet, enables students of various levels to become acquainted with particle physics and look for discoveries in a similar way to that of real research..

Introducing HEP to schools through educational scenaria / Kourkoumelis, Christine (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Vourakis, Stylianos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR))
Recent activities, towards the goal of introducing High Energy Physics in the school class, are reviewed. The most efficient method is a half or a full day workshop where the students are introduced to one of the large LHC experiments, follow a 'virtual visit' to the experiment's Control Room and perform an interactive analysis of real data.

The Inspiring Science Education project and the resources for HEP analysis by university students / Fassouliotis, Dimitris (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Kourkoumelis, Christine (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Vourakis, Stylianos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR))
The Inspiring Science Education outreach project has been running for more than two years, creating a large number of inquiry based educational resources for high-school teachers and students. Its goal is the promotion of science education in schools though new methods built on the inquiry based education techniques, involving large consortia of European partners and implementation of large-scale pilots in schools.

HEP interactive activities in high schools in the framework of the CREATIONS project / Kourkoumelis, Christine (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Vourakis, Stylianos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR)) ; Sotiriou, Sofoklis (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (GR))
CREATIONS is a Horizon 2020 European Union outreach project, which aims to increase young people’s interest in science. In the framework of CREATIONS we have been developing advanced digital tools and educational resources in order to facilitate the introduction of HEP in high schools and at the same time we have performed a number of interventions in Greek schools which take the form of half-day masterclasses.
