Abstract
The Extreme Energy Events (EEE) Project was born to include scientific, outreach and educational purposes.
It is designed to detect and study high energy cosmic rays through the detection of the extensive air shower’s muon component through an array of muon telescopes based on Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPC) GPS synchronized. The telescopes are organized in local clusters and single telescope stations distributed all over the Italian territory and installed mainly in high schools buildings.
These unconventional working sites offer young students the opportunity to get in touch with the world of high energy physics research. Every year hundreds of students and teachers are involved in the activities.
The EEE Collaboration regularly schedules on-line activities: monthly meetings, masterclasses and seminars. Activities focusing on the upgrade phase of the EEE Project have been carried out in the last two years, with enormous success and participation.
This contribution will present a general overview of the EEE outreach activities and the future plan.
