The aim of the project
is the fundamental research of high energy cosmic rays. Besides the scientific purpose, the project has also educational impact. Within the project, the network of detection stations of secondary cosmic rays showers is built. These stations are built mostly on the roofs of selected high schools in the Czech Republic.
