Creighton CROP Cooperation

We work together in CROP.

Cooperation with Mt. Michael

Fr. Liebl and the students at Mt. Micheal have participated in the CROP program from its beginning in 2000. The Mt. Micheal array is housed in the attic at Mt. Michael. Students do experiments between taking data runs on incoming cosmic rays.

Students are shown examining a detector, working with an oscilloscope, setting thresholds, and taking data.
