Beam line for schools - Tweets of intent

Here is a selection of some of the best "Tweets of intent" from the 455 teams that registered for the beam line for schools competition:

"Why do you think you should win this competition? "

 

Running an experiment at the prestigious CERN? Let us 'atom!' It is sure to be a 'smashing' time! May the gravitational force be with you.

 Switzerland

 

We have the ideas, the talent, the enthusiasm, all we need is an opportunity. Our theory is crazy, it just might be crazy enough to be true.

 Slovenia

 

Yes, we C(an)E(njoy)R(unning)N(ew)!(deas)

 Italy

 

We should win the competition because of our sacrifice of sleep for studying particle physics; it’s been a while since we sLepton our beds!

 United States

 

Our formula for winning has: particularly bold ideas, high energy enthusiasm, left-right brain symmetry, vibrant diversity. #beamusupCERN !

 Canada

 

Something that helps you to get up everyday. A passion which makes you enjoy every single moment of your life. For us this is Physics.

 Spain

 

The beauty of an experiment is that you don´t know wheter it will work out. We will create the occasion instead of waiting for it to come.

 Spain

 

Hadrons are heavy, Leptons are light, The standard model is incomplete, We will make it right!

 United Kingdom

 

We'd like to represent our school, hit by an earthquake, and forget that terrible experience developing a project essential to our future.

 Italy

 

We put the 'fun' in fundamental!

 United Kingdom

 

We want to take our snowball throwing experiments a step further, as they haven't led to any new particles - yet.

 Norway

 

We promise to work on a string of absurd ideas, as Einstein once said "If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it".

 Egypt

 

From the land of Demokritos who invented the notion of atom, our interdisciplinary experiment allows particles reveal their chaotic symphony.

 Greece

 

We are an ambitious group of students with ideas as infinite and delicious as pi(e).

 Poland

 

We're adeptly innovative with phenomenal ideas in a poorly funded school. CERN's competition offers an opportunity that seems unreal.

 Guyana

 

Because we know physics goes beyond what's written on books and we could so try out new ways to apply it,and so enrich our own lives.

 Italy

 

We will ignite the new big bang in fields of physics and prove that young brains can also make an impact.

 Slovakia

 

PHI! Love, Breathe, Drink, Eat Physics. Best Restaurant in town? CERN

 India

 

We're 7, the dream is 1. It's a kind of magic we're hoping to reach. One small step for CERN, one giant leap for us. Science must go on!

 Italy

 

So as to prove that ordinary students from less privileged countries such as Mauritius also stand a chance in the growing world of science.

 Mauritius

 

Down by Mont-Blanc, a strange state we're in, all charged up and about to spin, the Frog'higgs are charmed and ready to win!

 France

 

All us physicists yearn/to win a fun trip to CERN/From proton to pion/It's what we've got our eye on/So we think you should give us a turn.

 United Kingdom

 

We must win because our probability density wave function for September 2014 is maximal in Geneva. We also cook terrific cookies.

 France

 

Not even the strongest walls can stop our passion.

 Italy
