After lunch the students visited selected ECAP labs and participated in a video call with the winter-overs currently ensuring smooth operations of IceCube at the South Pole. During the practical part, the students were able to build their own cloud chamber and reproduce an analysis on the discovery of astrophysical neutrinos.
