  • Completed Cybersecurity Escape Room

    Cybersecurity, phishing, ransomware, the dark web. You probably have heard of these things, but what are they and why are they important? By earning this badge, you will explore the world of cybersecurity, an exciting area of computers and technology that focuses on protecting people while they are online. Team up with Argonne cybersecurity experts to stop an attack on a car before it gets turned into a 1-ton brick!

  • Smart Charging Challenge

    Imagine: your friend is getting ready to head out for the day and their phone gives them a low battery charge warning. They only have ten minutes before they must leave. They have several charging cables to choose from, all different lengths--Which one should they choose? Is there an optimal length to charge your phone? How much can you increase the charge on your phone in 10 minutes? Are there any other factors at play? In this activity, you will measure how much your phone’s battery charges in 10 minutes. You will then submit your results to the Argonne Smart Charging Data Form. Your submission will be one data point within a larger experiment tested by students from all over! Your findings will help answer the questions above.

  • Tame the Particle Challenge

    “Atoms are the building blocks of matter” is probably something you have heard before. You may also remember learning that atoms are made of three types of particles: neutrons, protons, and electrons. But did you know that charging and accelerating a beam of electrons or protons near the speed of light can help us answer some of societies greatest questions, like "Why did the T-rex have such small arms?" Taming these energetic particles is a delicate balance. Let’s see how well you can do it!
