Краткий обзор статьи: We report progress on applying technologies developed for LHC-era experiments to cosmic ray detection, using scintillating tiles with embedded wavelength-shifting fibers and avalanche photodiode readouts as parts of a robust, inexpensive cosmic air shower detector. We are planning to deploy such detectors in high schools as part of an outreach effort able to search for long-distance correlations between airshowers.
