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. Because of the maintenance of CERN's accelerators since the end of 2018, the winning experiments in 2020 will be run at DESY in Hamburg, Germany. The first prize for the winning teams is a trip to DESY to carry out their proposed experiments at a fully-equipped accelerator beamline. There are additional prizes for shortlisted teams and certificates for all participants. How to take part? Learn more about BL4S and how to apply and get inspired by our latest promotional video:
