Students and teachers from high schools near Chicago measured the rate of cosmic ray muons 100 meters underground in the Fermilab MINOS neutrino tunnel. The effect of the overburden was studied as a function of distance away from the access tunnel. A surface detector provided normalization over time and a third detector monitored possible background from the neutrino beam.
