High School 11 visit CERN facilities

Posted on: 4th July 2014 | Category: Swiss adventures

In their final term at Surval, fourteen girls from grade 11 had the chance to visit the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. Prior to their visit, the girls investigated the work that has been done and is going on at CERN during their science lessons. This visit gave them the opportunity to hear about the research and findings first-hand during a captivating lecture. They also were able to envisage what it must be like to work in scientific research during their visit to one of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) detector centres, ATLAS. The girls were fascinated by the fundamental research being carried out in the LHC and were astounded by the size of the equipment needed to research such tiny particles. Giovanna Lopes said;

“ It was amazing to see where they are doing all the research and how they can ‘see’ the particles. The results from their work are so important but it’s so easy to forget that because of the scale they are working on.”
