The research guide was written by L. F. Thomas (LF Thomas Consulting Ltd. and ESERO Space Ambassador) with support from the CERN@school team and Creative Hex Graphic Design. TimPix is supported by the UK Space Agency via a Principia award.
the research guide
- Once you have returned your signed agreement you will be issued with a username and password. Using these details log onto timepix.researchinschools.org> and choose a data set to download.
- Carry out background research beginning with the TimPix research guide . This can extend to reading previous work carried out by students and watching our online seminar. The TimPix 101 exercise will familiarise you with the data format. Ensure that as part of this process you have set a research aim.
- Carry out analysis using Excel, Tableau or ARCGIS (the latter two software packages are available for free to IRIS schools, see timepix.researchinschools.org for details) and share conclusions with IRIS through a written report or poster.
