Teilchentour I: Welt der Teilchen (D. Schmitz, Bonn University)

The "Teilchentour" from Bonn University is aimed at introducing particle physics and its applications to 16-year-old students, complementing the basic nuclear physics curriculum at high school. This makes it accessible for any interested reader.
It's first part focusses on basic explanations of the buildung blocks of matter, and the forces between them. The experimental methods of identifying elementary particles and their interactions using bubble chambers and modern particle detectors can be learned in several exercises on real scientific data. It introduces the connection of particle physics to big bang astrophysics or medical applications, which is further elaborated in the second part, "Teilchentour II".
