S’Cool LAB is a new Physics Education Research facility at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland. High school students and their teachers are invited to contribute to our research projects by taking part in hands-on & minds-on particle physics experiments on-site at CERN. Participating in S’Cool LAB research enables teachers to give their students a glimpse of life and work in a world-leading international research institute. By getting hands-on with physics in S’Cool LAB, students can make discoveries independently, learn to work scientifically and apply their knowledge in a new setting. Students also have the chance to engage directly with members of CERN’s scientific community.
The S’Cool LAB Summer CAMP is an opportunity for high-school students (aged 16 and above) from all around the world to explore the fascinating world of particle physics. The selected 30 students will spend almost 2 weeks of their summer at S’Cool LAB, CERN’s hands-on particle physics learning laboratory, for an epic programme of lectures and tutorials, their own team research projects and visits of CERN’s research installations. The second S’Cool LAB Summer CAMP will take place from 24 July to 4 August 2018.
The programme will be free of charge for selected candidates: Travel expenses, accommodation in double rooms in the CERN Hotel and meals will be covered by CERN.
