S'Cool LAB

S’Cool LAB offers groups of high school students aged 16-19 the chance to carry out hands-on particle physics-themed experiments during their school visits to CERN.
 
There are two programmes : one-off cloud chamber workshops, and the S’Cool LAB PLUS+ programme. The latter includes participation in physics education research projects and requires a certain commitment by the teacher with respect to student preparation, as well as certain criteria the group must fulfil.
