On 21 September, the winners of the 2022 Beamline for Schools competition arrived at CERN and DESY to start their experiments. This group of brilliant high-school students is spending two full weeks at test-beam facilities to perform the experiments that they designed for the competition.
Following the successful collaboration between CERN and DESY during the long shutdown of the CERN accelerator complex, in 2022 it has been possible to expand the competition and to invite two teams to Switzerland and one to Germany.
The teams performing their experiments at CERN come from the Elsewedy Technical Academy in Cairo, Egypt, and the Enrico Fermi Physics Club in Vigo, Spain. The team invited to DESY comes from the École du Sacré-Coeur in Reims, France.
Beamline for Schools is an education and outreach project funded by the CERN & Society Foundation and supported by individual donors, foundations and companies.
