The Physics Department is organising a trip to CERN, the European Centre for Nuclear Research, for next year’s Higher Physics pupils.
CERN is near Geneva and is most famous for its Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This particle accelerator is at the cutting edge of modern physics, and was used in the discovery of the Higgs Boson in 2012. CERN is also where the World Wide Web was invented.
This will be our first trip to CERN but we know of many other schools who have told us it is a fantastic experience.
The trip, from Monday 4th to Wednesday 6th February 2019, will cost approximately £300. This includes flights, transfers, insurance and accommodation.
Information letters have been posted to the pupils who have opted for Higher Physics. The first 12 pupils to return a £50 deposit will get one of the 12 available places.
