To establish a closer contact between school and experimental sciences at exposing high school students to experimental Physics, Sapienza Università di Roma and INFN participate to the Lab2Go project in the context of PCTO and supported by PLS. A measurement of the cosmic muons flux as a function of the Zenith angle has been proposed by tutors from Sapienza and INFN Roma to students of Liceo Scientifico "L. Pietrobono" in Alatri. The measurement has been carried out by a muon telescope constituted by two ArduSiPM. The lecture perfectly fits the goal of Lab2Go allowing students to acquire additional knowledge regarding physics topic beyond the ministerial educational programs. Indeed, the measurement allowed us to introduce concepts as elementary particles, particles shower, particle detectors, time coincidence, antimatter, special relativity and conservation of energy in a particle reactions. In this report, we will present the measurement and the obtained results.
