During my first year as a PhD student I supervised Benedikt, a 15 year old school student from Germany. Benedikt visited CERN for ten days during the summer to gather insight into the daily business at CERN. Since he was versed in some basic programming, I introduced him into the notions of programming language grammars, software testing and test specification. He grasped the concepts quite quickly and showed a lot of talent and interest in my section’s work.
