I made two videos describing the particle accelerator I built, along with the supercomputer (Beowulf cluster) that runs the accelerator - a simple video and a very technical video. This is the simple version. I'll post the technical version in a few weeks.
Despite my absence, my project won Grand Champion at the county level and is heading to the Indiana State Fair! My fingers are crossed that I get a blue ribbon at the state level! Regardless of the ribbon I receive, this project was a ton of fun and I learned so much! I'd highly recommend this project to anyone interested in physics and engineering.
