Bringing CERN
into the classroom

About CERN@school

CERN@school brings technology from CERN into the classroom to aid with the teaching of particle physics. It also aims to inspire the next generation of physicists and engineers by giving participants the opportunity to be part of a national collaboration of students, teachers and academics, analysing data obtained from detectors based on the ground and in space to make new, curiosity-driven discoveries at school.

Broadly speaking, CERN@school consists of:

By providing access to cutting-edge research equipment, raw data from ground and space-based experiments, CERN@school provides the foundation for a programme that meets the many of the aims and objectives of CERN and the programme's supporting academic and industrial partners.
