Over the Easter holiday, 30 sixth form students visited the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, the world's largest site for investigating particle physics.
Students on the trip were given the fantastic opportunity of spending the day in CERN, where they attended a lecture and various talks from scientists and engineers. A highlight of the day was the guided tour of the Antimatter factory, which is leading the development of proton cancer therapy, and the Microcosm exhibition where students could see a lot of the theory learned in Physics put into action.
As part of the trip, students visited the Palais des Nations for a tour of the UN offices and spectacular conference halls. The group then headed out of town for some 10 pin bowling, where students displayed their abilities at hitting the pins (or gutters!).
All students were fantastic throughout the trip and we look forward to offering this learning opportunity to others in the future.
