Laser centres launch Science Challenge for high school students

ELI Beamlines and HiLASE Centre are looking for high school teams that have the courage to innovate laser research!

Starting in November, teams of three have the opportunity to participate in the upcoming online round of the Science Challenge. During this part of the challenge, students will create the most effective program to automate laser systems that could find applications industry. Students will tackle a lot of new information in the areas of programming, optics, physics and most importantly teamwork in a group of enthusiasts. In December, the very best ones will participate in a 24-hour final right at the laser centres. That’s where we will add hardware to the programming, so screwdriver, lenses and lasers!

Team Profile: Team: 1 teacher as mentor + 3 high school students aged 15-19.
