Physics students take a trip to CERN

The CERN physics facility building in Geneva

We took 30 students on a two-day trip to Geneva to visit the world’s largest science experiment – the giant Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator and detector. Whilst there students toured two main facilities – the data processing centre and the small synchrotron particle accelerator.

The students also had the chance to explore Geneva, as well as experiencing undoubted highlights such as travelling on a double-decker train and visiting the Geneva Museum of Natural History, where the star attraction was Janus the two-headed tortoise.
