Sixteen Science students enjoyed the trip of a lifetime when they visited Geneva, home to CERN and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The annual trip saw students tour the world-renowned research facility, and view an antimatter experiment on the International Space Station live from the control room.

A Level science student and recent Gold CREST award winner, Yann Newby commented “I thought that the CERN trip was great fun and very interesting. Geneva was beautiful and learning about the work that goes on at CERN was fascinating. I particularly liked visiting the NASA control centre that operates there, and learning about the work CERN does with NASA on the international space station.”

The trip was a fantastic opportunity for the students to learn about the importance of CERN ahead of the relaunch of the Colllider later this year.
