  Description Presented by: Peggy Norris, Sanford Underground Laboratory at Homestake and Black Hills State University, and Cathy Ezrailson, University of South Dakota The Deep Underground Science and Engineering Lab, an NSF project being planned for the former Homestake gold mine in Lead, South Dakota, will attempt to answer questions at the forefront of our knowledge of fundamental physics and the nature of the cosmos by putting large detectors a mile deep. In this workshop we will explore two of those questions: What is the nature of dark matter, and what is the nature of neutrinos? The workshop will consist of both classroom activities and material exploring these questions and how scientists hope to answer them.
