Beamline for Schools 2024

Beamline for Schools 2024 is about to start! Beamline for Schools is a physics competition for high school students from all around the world inviting them to propose an experiment that they want to perform at a particle accelerator.

The popular competition celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2024. Three winning teams will be selected, two of which will perform their experiments at CERN and one at DESY. There will be additional prizes for up to 40 selected teams. All prospective participants who preregister to the competition will have the possibility to follow online Q&A sessions about the preparation of their experiment proposals and to participate in virtual visits to CERN.

The deadline to submit a proposal is 10 April 2024 at 23:59 CEST.

Further information can be found in the official invitation. The Beamline for Schools competition is fully funded via the CERN & Society Foundation. We kindly invite you to check out their website and contribute.
