This award-winning resource features an interactive tour of the atomic nucleus, quarks, neutrinos, antimatter, dark matter, and particle accelerators. It introduces the theory of fundamental particles and forces, called the Standard Model, in a way that is comprehensible to learners with little background in physics or chemistry. It includes related classroom activities, wall posters, and a brief history of particle theory for teachers.

Editor's Note: The module on the Standard Model can be easily adapted for grades 8-9. All materials in this resource are appropriate for introductory physics and chemistry courses.

Topic: Particles and Interactions and the Standard Model
Unit Title: The Standard Model

In terms of matter, what is a fundamental particle? This award-winning website aimed at high school students introduces the theory of fundamental particles and forces, called the Standard Model. It includes a tutorial on accelerators and particle detectors and also explores recent experimental evidence  that promises to extend the theory even further.
