Pupils of the AHS Theodor-Kramer-Strasse in Vienna converted regular coffee cans to fully functional particle detectors under the guidance of HEPHY scientists. They participated as “Youngsteins” in the ”Win a beamline” contest of CERN using those detectors. They made it to the top 16 of 292 participating teams.
