Last month a group of year 13 physics students had the privilege of visiting CERN in Geneva Switzerland, the world’s largest particle physics lab and home of the large hadron collider. The students saw some of the behind-the-scenes work of the facility, were given demonstrations and enjoyed the talk on how the collider probes the fundamental structure of the particles that make up everything around us. During the 3-day trip, students also had the chance to see Geneva and take in sights such as the Jet d'Eau, the tallest fountain in the world, originally built in 1886 to control and release excess pressure, and visited the original UN headquarters, founded in 1945 to maintain international peace and security and to achieve international cooperation.
