At the end of last term, as part of trips week, seven physics students visited CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland. 

During the trip students visited the Floral Clock, the Natural History Museum and St. Peter's Cathederal, amounting to 18km of walking on their first day seeing the sights.

The second day was spent at CERN where they visited the microcosm, The Universe of Particles exhibitions and took part in the S-Cool Lab where they built cloud chambers and detected exotic particles called muons. They also had the opportunity to attend a lecture on the Universe of Particles. 

Before heading home, the children visited the History of Science Museum, the Palace of the United Nations and took a boat taxi to play giant chess in the Promenade des Bastion.

The students were a credit to themselves and excellent representatives of the school, it looks like everyone had a fantastic time!
