ATLAS W path is an educational scenario developed for high school students. They are introduced to basic concepts of particle identification and event classification. Students work with event displays from experimental data taken at the ATLAS detector. A dataset with 6000 real events has been made available. Measurement tasks include identifying particles to reveal the inner structure of the proton and to find the signature of the Higgs boson. ATLAS W path is widely used in International Masterclasses as well as in other educational scenarios.
