Physics students visit CERN

Wednesday 05th April 2017

30 sixth form Physics students have visited the research facilities at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. They visited the first particle accelerator that was built at CERN and one of the detectors on the Large Hadron Collider that proved the existence of the Higgs boson. During the visit on 31st March 2017 the students discovered how CERN is helping to answer some of the most fundamental questions; how did the Universe begin? What are the basic building blocks of matter?

The visit to Geneva also included a tour of the United Nations building. Here they were able to sit in the seats of delegates from all over the world who work on issues such as humanitarian aid through to the agreement to stop nuclear weapon testing.
