CERN researchers and last year’s winners took part in the hanguot above to say more about the Beamline for Schools competition and what it’s like to carry out an experiment with particles from a beamline at the Proton Synchrotron.

Last year, the student teams – Odysseus' Comrades from Varvakios Pilot School in Athens, Greece and Dominicuscollege from Dominicus College in Nijmegen in the Netherlands – were selected out of 292 proposals to spend 10 days conducting their proposed experiments at the fully equipped T9 beamline at CERN.

As well as this English-language hangout, the Beamline for Schools YouTube playlist contains videos and previous hangouts in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

Registration for the competition closes on 31 January 2015, all you need to do to register is send us the name of the school and of the participants as well as a tweet-of-intent stating why you think you should win this competition. You will still have until 31 March 2015 to prepare your full project, including a 1-minute video giving the highlights. Here is your chance!
