International competition for high school students from all around the world organized by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Geneva, Switzerland.

The competition invites teams of high-school students to propose a scientific experiment that they want to perform at a particle accelerator beamline. A team of experts selects the best proposals, and the first prize is a trip to a particle physics facility to carry the proposed experiments at a fully-equipped accelerator beamline, with the help of professional scientists. There are additional prizes for shortlisted teams and certificates for all participants. After three very successful editions at DESY in Hamburg, Germany, the winners of Beamline for Schools 2022 will perform their experiments at CERN.

Take part in hands-on scientific experiments on-site at CERN! Through BL4S, CERN offers a great opportunity for students to learn, make new discoveries and apply their knowledge into new settings. Student teams from across the world submit experiment proposals that are reviewed by scientists. Top teams are then invited on a trip to CERN to conduct their experiment with mentorship from scientists. Winning teams participate in a two week program with full cost covered to perform their proposed experiments together with professional scientists.
