Founded in 1954, CERN is considered ‘the home of Science’ with hundreds of scientists and researchers working in the areas of particle physics and computing, using the world’s most complex scientific instruments.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, was created by CERN scientists in 2008 and is used to help them understand a bit better the mysteries of the universe. It was also here where the very first website went live back in 1991 so CERN is the official birthplace of the World Wide Web!
On this fascinating school trip inspired by Science, students will spend a full day at CERN where they will witness Science in the making and visit the History of Science Museum in Geneva.
They will also get to explore the city of Geneva, where many international organisations are based including the United Nations and Red Cross; and take a scenic boat trip on Lake Geneva, with the Alps and mighty Mont Blanc as a dramatic backdrop.
The Geneva and CERN Science School Trip can be adapted to your particular group and teaching needs, including additional nights and activities as required.
