Canadian high school students awarded one of two CERN 2017 Beamline for Schools research opportunities

From July 2016 to March 2017, CERN invited schools from around the world to submit a proposal for a scientific experiment on their beam line, with the winning teams being given the opportunity to travel to CERN to run their experiment at the CERN accelerator in September 2017. The two winning schools are from Italy and Canada. The Canadian submission was prepared by a team (Charging Cavaliers) of 6 teenage girls and 5 teenage boys from the Père-René-de-Galinée Franco-Ontarian high school, in Cambridge, Ontario, and supervised by Prof. Jim Pinfold, from the University of Alberta. Congratulations to the Canadian winners!
