Europe/Berlin

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. Because of the maintenance of CERN's accelerators since the end of 2018, the winning experiments in 2021 will run at DESY in Hamburg, Germany.

Take part in hands-on scientific experiments on-site at DESY! Through BL4S, CERN and DESY offer 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 DESY 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.
