CERN Geneva Switzerland Trip

Over the May bank holiday Year 12 Science students spent the 3 days in Geneva Switzerland visiting the largest science experiment in the world, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.  The students experienced a lecture about CERN and its operation as well as visiting the first ever particle collider at CERN and the control room of one of the experiments.

The students also experienced the cultural aspects of Geneva with a visit to a traditional Swiss restaurant with Swiss Fondue and traditional music. On the last day the students learnt about the history of the Red Cross and Red Crescent organisation and how their work helps people across the world.

Whilst in Geneva on the Sunday we had the opportunity to experience mass at the English speaking Catholic Church where we are always made very welcome.  The flight home was delayed so we were all very tired when we arrived home in the early hours of Monday morning.
