The CERN Beamline for Schools (BL4S) is an official competition powered by CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Geneva, Switzerland. It is open for all high-school students around the world. The competition invites teams of high-school students to propose a scientific experiment that they want to perform. Teams may be composed of students from a single school or a number of schools working together.
