We are a group of teachers who have independently participated in the CERN Beamline for Schools (BL4S) competition with teams of high school students from our schools between 2014 and 2021. All of our teams won the competition, and therefore our students had the opportunity to perform their proposed experiments at a particle accelerator. The experience of mentoring a team has been extremely beneficial to our professional development. In this paper, we will describe the effects that the participation in BL4S had on us, on our students and how it has impacted our approach to teaching STEM subjects.
