Beamline for Schools is an international physics competition for high school students from all around the world. CERN is now inviting teams of high-school students to propose a scientific experiment through this competition that they want to perform at a particle accelerator. Your team is free to propose any experiment that involves the use of the particle beam available for the competition.
The two teams that prepare the best proposals will win a trip to a particle accelerator facility. They will get a chance to perform their experiments at a fully-equipped beamline. In 2022 the experiments will be performed at one of the beamlines of the CERN Proton Synchrotron accelerator.
There are additional prizes for a shortlist of teams and certificates for all participants.
must be a team of high-school students from any part of the world.
should be from the age group of (16-19).
In addition, the team must consist of at least five students with at least one adult team coach.
Only members of a winning team who are 16 years old or older at the time of their visit can enter the CERN site.
There is no maximum team size in terms of participation in the proposal stage. However, invitations to CERN for the students per winning team will be limited to a maximum of 9 students.
In addition, each winning team should be accompanied by atleast two adult supervisors for the visit to CERN.
Participants who are under the legal age of majority in the country where they are applying, must have the consent of their guardian before registering and also sign a consent form.
