BEAMLINE FOR SCHOOLS (BL4S)
International competition for high school students from all around the world organised by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Geneva, Switzerland
The competition invites teams of high-school students to propose a scientific experiment that they want to perform at a particle accelerator. The two teams that prepare the best proposals will win a trip to a particle accelerator facility to perform their experiments at a fully-equipped beamline. Because of the maintenance of CERN's accelerators since the end of 2018, the winning experiments in 2021 will run at DESY in Hamburg, Germany. There are additional prizes for a shortlist of teams and certificates for all participants. Learn more about BL4S and how to apply and get inspired by our latest promotional video:
How to take part in BL4S 2021?
- Register your team and think about an experiment you would like to perform. Read carefully the documentation about the beam and detectors. Look at by previous winners' proposals and experiment examples and do not hesitate to get in touch with an expert.
- Submit your proposal by midnight CET of April the 15th 2021. Note that the registration is not mandatory to submit your proposal.
The proposal submission is open
Take part in hands-on scientific experiments on-site at a particle accelerator! Through BL4S, CERN and DESY offer a great opportunity for students to learn, make new discoveries and apply their knowledge into new settings.
