    14. DØ Central Fiber Tracker “Student involvement at its best”   Joe Martin and Amy DeCelles are QuarkNet students of Patrick Mooney at Trinity High School in South Bend, Indiana. His group of students, most of them seniors at various high schools in an around South Bend, recently visited Fermilab to learn more about the laboratory and to see the 40-foot-high DZero detector. Every morning at 7:30 a.m., five days a week, students of our QuarkNet group are on shift at a science lab near Notre Dame to prepare optical for use in waveguides as part of Fermilab's DZero detector," Martin said. "In the afternoon we have lectures on related physics aspects and how DZero will use the fibers we assembled. In addition to earning some money, we learn a lot." "We get spools with 2,500 meters of fibers, and we check, bundle and shield them. Then we send the fibers to Fermilab, where they put connectors on the endings and install the fibers in the detector," DeCelles said. "It is our responsibility to identify fibers that do not work and replace them." The QuarkNet program seems to be well on its way to achieving its goals, stimulating interest in science among high school students. Will they consider studying physics when they start college next year? DeCelles and her peer students didn't hesitate. "Absolutely!" they said. They'd been caught in the QuarkNet.
