Welcome to CERN@school
CERN@school is a programme designed to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers by offering access to CERN technology. Students carry out their own research projects using detectors provided by the Institute for Research in Schools. This work is celebrated each year at our Research Symposium.
- On receipt of your signed agreement you will be sent a link to make a request to book an MX-10 detector. Please note that these are in high demand and there may be limited availability.
- Before receiving the detector plan how you are going to use it. A common approach is to use it to demonstrate properties of radiation to younger students whilst senior students can use it for a research project. Along with starter experiments, guidance on how it links to the curriculum can be found here . You can get an idea of the types of work carried out so far by visiting TAPAS, our online analysis site.
- Upload any results to TAPAS so that they will be accessible to you once the detector has left the school. Carry out analysis and share your conclusions with IRIS either through a written report or poster.
