The Hall of Fame of the Beamline for Schools competition!
Since the first edition in 2014, 10 teams have won the opportunity to run their experiments at a beam line at CERN.
The teams "Odysseus' Comrades" from Greece and "Dominicuscollege" from the Netherlands won the first competition, followed in 2015 by "Leo4G" from Italy and "Accelerating Africa" from South Africa. For its third year running, CERN welcomed "Pyramid Hunters" from Poland as well as "Relatively Special" from the United Kingdom and for the fourth edition the teams "Charging Cavaliers" from Canada and "TCO-ASA" from Italy were welcomed. Finally, for the fifth edition the teams "Beamcats" from the Philippines and "Cryptic Ontics" from India will be invited to CERN.
A beautiful mix of countries and origins for an enriching competition!
