Searching for The Big Bang!

Nineteen post-16 students are venturing off to Geneva, Switzerland to explore the Hadron Collider at CERN during the Easter holidays. This is an exciting opportunity for our students to see real scientists working at the forefront of Science, Particle Physics. CERN was made famous a few years back with the discovery of the Higgs Boson, but has been instrumental in the discovery of other particles and anti-particles such as the neutrino and antineutrio pair. Their current work is exploring the origins of the Universe and the Big Bang.  The students will also visit the UN building, the Science and Red Cross museums, in addition to the ICT Discovery centre all within the three-day trip. We are honoured to accept grant funding from both the Ogden Trust and Institute of Physics who see this as a great opportunity to bring Physics alive.
