German research groups, among others at DESY, are involved in the experiments IceCube and IceTop, VERITAS, MAGIC, H.E.S.S. and CTA as well as Fermi LAT in international cooperation with groups from Europe, America and Asia.

Within the German Netzwerk Teilchenwelt and in cooperation with the Joachim Herz Foundation, teaching materials have been developed to help teachers bring particle and astroparticle physics into the classroom. The series comprises four volumes:

  1. Interactions, Electric Charge and Particles,
  2. Research Methods,
  3. Cosmic Rays and
  4. Microcourses.

The booklets for free download can be found here (only in German):
