If I understood your question correctly, then you want a simple experiment to demonstrate that magnetic monopoles cannot exist. The simplest way to explain this to a high schooler would be to actually break a small piece of magnet, and then make the student realize that the poles of the magnet haven't been 'split'; instead, both the pieces contain two poles. ...

So, I believe that at least one of the now closed experiments (LEP, Tevatron, Hera, ...) might have published their framework and data, but I couldn't find anything on the net. Does anyone know of such a case? I have found this misconception, that the framework and the data might be published or even should be published. It is like asking for a mission ...

I do not know if my answer can be classified as physics but Julia in her question wrote that the students are generally very interested in technology, engineering, physics and computer science and so I offer and answer that maybe can be considered technology or computer science. The pinhole or projective camera is a purely geometric model that ...

I would use the Van der Waals equation. Here you are, in the German wiki: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van-der-Waals-Gleichung Also, there's lot of laws expressed as $a = b/c$. They may be too simple for your purposes, but they can be useful to show the application. For example, Ohm's law $I=V/R$, where $I$ is current intensity, $V$ voltage and $R$ is the ...

You're looking for experimental particle physics on a big detector at a national lab: There's no end to the custom electronics and embedded systems associated with the data acquisition, Computer science is definitely required (analysis of big data sets), and Plenty of really interesting fundamental physics. If you are still at the university go talk ...
