From 14 to 28 September, the three winning teams of the 2023 edition of the Beamline for Schools competition had the chance to use the test-beam facilities at CERN and DESY to perform their experiments.
The “Myriad Magnets” team from the United States and the “Particular Perspective” team from Pakistan came to CERN, while the “Wire Wizards” team from the Netherlands were invited to go to DESY.
In 2023, Beamline for Schools celebrated its 10th edition. To mark the occasion, CERN and DESY organised a hybrid event attended by representatives of CERN and DESY, the sponsors of the competition, winning students, team coaches and support scientists. Each offered a unique perspective on the various aspects of the competition.
Beamline for Schools is an education and outreach project funded through the CERN & Society Foundation by individual donors, foundations and companies.
