Beamline for School 2023

Beamline for Schools 2023 is starting and it reached its 10th edition! BL4S is a physics competition that invites teams of high-school students from all around the world to conceive an experiment that can be performed at the test beam facility of a particle accelerator. In 2023, the winners will be three, two teams will perform their experiments at CERN and one at DESY. There will be additional prizes for a selection of teams (up to 30). All prospective participants who register for the competition will be able to follow online events and virtual visits of CERN and DESY in preparation for their proposal submission. All the information can be found in the official invitation. The deadline is April 12 2023.

Hack an Exoplanet

In early 2023, ESA’s Cheops (CHaracterising ExOPlanet Satellite) will observe two exoplanet targets, KELT-3b and TOI-560c. By joining ESA’s Hack an Exoplanet events, teams of secondary students will get the opportunity to analyse real satellite data collected by Cheops and hack these mysterious alien worlds. This activity is targeted at teams of students aged 14 to 19 years old. ​ Online and physical hackathons will be organised in April and May 2023. If you are a teacher, you can even host your own hackathon at your school! The hackathon activities developed with the support of ESA experts will be made freely available on the platform in multiple languages in early April. After teams participate in a hackathon, they can submit their project until June 2023 and apply for the Best Project prize. For more information visit hackanexoplanet.esa.int.
