Teacher science trip to Cern Geneva

Miss Wishart from the science department was extremely lucky to visit CERN in November. CERN is a massive complex housing over 1200 scientists who work collaboratively to discover new things in the world of particle physics.

 Miss Wishart attended lectures on the large Hadron collider, antimatter, detectors and the applications of particle physics. She also got to go 100m underground and visit the site of CMS (compact muon solenoid) which is a detector for particles from the large Hadron collider. That particular detector is used to try and find the elusive Higgs-Boson particle!

 Miss Wishart said that it was a “once in a lifetime opportunity and the physics investigated there was mind blowing”. After giving an enjoyable assembly on the visit to enthuse our students Miss Wishart has asked if any students would be interested in visiting CERN and if the uptake is positive she will look in to organising a trip there.
