Abstract
The Cosmic-Ray Extremely Distributed Observatory (CREDO) is the project to search and study ultra high-energy cosmic ray particles from deep space producing simultaneous extensive air showers over the entire exposed surface of the Earth. The concept of the CREDO infrastructure assumes absorbing all kinds of cosmic ray data from any apparatus all over the world, including professional instruments, educational detectors and arrays, and popular devices such as smartphones. We discuss here the usefulness and possibilities of using the last one and present the educational CREDO-Maze mini array comprised of four CosmicWatch detectors. This simple and affordable apparatus is shown to be able to register the extensive air showers and can be used to study cosmic rays much more effectively than the simple two-detector CosmicWatch muon telescope station. The further development direction is indicated.
