On June 24th CERN from Geneva and DESY from Hamburg announced the winning teams of this year’s Beam Line for School (BL4S) competition. This BL4S competition challenges students at high-schools from all over the world to propose an experiment at one of the very large accelerator facilities in Europe (CERN or DESY). The team known as the Particle Peers from the local Praedinius gymnasium and a team from the USA are the winners of 2019. Prof. Ad M. van den Berg from KVI-CART assisted the six students from the Groningen high-school in their quest to investigate the science question to be addressed at the accelerator facility of DESY in Hamburg. The team decided to investigate the difference in the development of the electromagnetic shower induced by either a positron or an electron. In October the Particle Peers team will perform this very experiment at the accelerator facility in Hamburg.
