CERN visit

On Friday 24th June seventeen Year 11 and 12 students and three teachers embarked on their journey to Switzerland.  When their plane landed in the afternoon they went straight to CERN for a tour.  They learnt how protons were made from an atom of Hydrogen and how they were accelerated with electric fields and deflected in a circle using magnetic fields. They saw the Atlas Centre, which sits directly above the Large Hadron Collider and had a chance to see into the control centre of the Hadron Collider.  Afterwards they checked into their youth hostel and had a substantial dinner followed by a walk along the side of Lake Geneva and enjoyed ice cream and slush puppies.  

The next morning the group had an early start and travelled back to CERN to consolidate what they learnt the day before and to see the permanent interactive exhibition “Universe of Particles” where they learnt about how the universe was created.  They then headed off to the Old Quarter of Geneva where they had lunch, experienced climbing up the steps of the towers of the 12th Century Cathedral and visiting the local market. Next they travelled the short journey on tram to the foot of Mont Salve and then took a cable car to the top.  They experienced spectacular views over Geneva and behind the clouds they could make out the shape of Mont Blanc. In the evening they enjoyed a meal in a traditional Swiss restaurant and were given the opportunity to play some of the traditional musical instruments, which they thoroughly enjoyed. On the way back to the hostel the students had another chance for more ice cream and a paddle in the lake.  

The next day the students went on a boat tour around Lake Geneva to have a close look at the world’s tallest water fountain Jet d’Eau along with the chateaus situated along the lakes perimeter. They then had a chance to get some last minute souvenirs beside the lake before making their way back to Geneva Airport and flying home.

This was a thoroughly packed itinerary but the students and staff had a fabulous time.  The only improvement the students could think of was staying in Switzerland for longer.
