First paper published by one of the winning teams of 2014 BL4S in IOP Science!

For the very first time in Beamline for Schools Competition history, a paper has been published in "Physics Education" 2016, the international, scientific journal of the Institute of Physics (IOP) Science, by the Dominicus College, one of the two winning teams of 2014 BL4S, along with the Nikhef and Radboud University (Netherlands).

In their paper entitled "Building and testing a high school calorimeter at CERN", they describe how their experiment was performed, its results and the collaboration with their co-winners from Greece, the Odysseus’ Comrades team.
