The first edition of the Beamline for Schools competition took place in 2014, year that coincides with CERN’s 60th anniversary. The idea was to make a fully equipped beamline available for high-school students to run an experiment in the same way that the laboratory’s researchers do.
For the first time, the laboratory was offering a chance to high-school students worldwide to carry out an experiment at CERN as if they were real researchers working on a real proton beamline. Since then, the past three editions met a great success and CERN received hundreds of submissions from students from all around the world willing to take part in this amazing competition.
