Geneva 2018

The Science Department welcome Year 9 students to the fifth visit to Geneva, Switzerland to visit the world famous Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European headquarters of the United Nations, the headquarters of the Red Cross and many other attractions in this beautiful city.

Top physicists will give our students a tour of the world’s largest science experiment at CERN, with insights into the ground-breaking technology that is furthering our understanding of the origins and structure of the universe, with discoveries such as the ‘God Particle’ and the unravelling of the mysteries of dark matter. The visits to the stunning UN building and the Red Cross Headquarters are invaluable in allowing the students to consider many different aspects of humanity. There are many opportunities to experience Swiss culture through visits to museums, gardens and the cathedral, enjoying local food and using no less than six modes of transport. The visit is truly cross-curricular involving Science, Geography, History, RE and French.
