CERN trip to Switzerland 2016

A group of 28 Sixth Form physics students travelled to Geneva, Switzerland, to visit the world's largest physics research laboratory, CERN, where they learned about the most recent discoveries being made in the scientific community. They witnessed the technology and equipment used in the operation of the Large Hadron Collider, as well as the four particle detectors which were used to prove the existence of the elusive Higgs Boson, in 2012.

The group also took time out to visit the United Nations Office for a guided tour, learning about current issues confronting the UN, and appreciating the art donated by all UN member states. Omar Choudary commented, "Our visit to CERN not only helped develop our understanding of the physics involved, but also gave us an appreciation of how a huge scientific community can work together to achieve such an awe-inspiring feat."
