Beamline for Schools – Be a scientist!

Målgrupp: Gymnasiet

Ämneskategori: Fysik

Arrangör: Teknisk-naturvetenskapliga fakulteten

Did you ever wonder what it is like to be a scientist? If you’re up for a challenge, the BL4S competition is your chance to experience it. Any high-school student from all around the world can join the adventure. Jump into the world of particle physics and think of a simple and creative experiment.

Who is eligible?

The competition is open to teams of high-school students from all around the world who, if they win, are invited (with up to two adult team coaches) to DESY to run their experiment. Teams must have at least five students with at least one adult team coach, but there is no upper limit to a team’s size (although just nine students per winning team will be invited to DESY). Teams may be composed of students from a single school, or a number of schools working together. Take part in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!


Which experiments can be proposed?

Your team is totally free with respect to the experiment that you propose as long as it does not rise any safety concerns. The technical feasibility will be an important criterion for the selection of the winners. We know that judging what is feasible and what is not may be difficult for you. Refer to this support document for information.


When is the deadline for the next competition?

In order to take part in the next BL4S edition 2020, you have to submit your proposal until 31 March 2020 midnight CET.
