It was certainly an interesting and practical alternative to regular classes for some sixth graders at the European School in Karlsruhe (ESKA): Cheng Chang, "LA3NET - Marie Curie PhD Fellow", and PhD student of Prof. A.-S. Müller in ANKA`s Accelerator Department, presented his work "Compton backscattering of photons". The enthusiastic pupils did not hesitate to ask the young scientist from China questions about the speed of electrons, the uses of gamma rays or the energy costs of a large research facility.
 
"Although the topic of particle accelerators will not be taught until next year, the pupils got a first impression of this research field" said Nils Franke, physics teacher at the ESKA and a former scientist at DESY in Hamburg.
