Science in School - Issue 34, 2015-11-26

Welcome to another issue of Science in School, packed with cutting-edge science and hands-on teaching activities. In this issue we also profile one of our regular readers who developed teaching materials after a 'once in a lifetime' experience: a scientific cruise. You can find the full issue online and if you subscribe to the print version, your copy should be arriving soon.

The Science in School team wishes you all a very happy festive season!

Apply for CERN’s 2016 Beamline for Schools competition

CERN is again offering high-school students from around the world the chance to create and perform a scientific experiment on a CERN accelerator beamline. Now in its third year, the Beamline for Schools competition is open to teams of at least 5 students aged 16 and up with at least one adult supervisor, or coach. Find out about the beamline and facilities via, then think of a simple, creative experiment. Submit your written proposal and short video by the end of March 2016. Previous winners have tested webcams and classroom-grown crystals in the beamline, others have studied how particles decay and investigated high-energy gamma rays.
