AS and A2 Physics students from Huddersfield New College recently visited CERN, Geneva, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, to learn how the ideas they have studied at New College are put into practice at the cutting edge of scientific research.
Students spent several hours at the laboratory with a CERN tour guide, watching a short film and visiting several of the ongoing experiments.
CERN's main function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research which has resulted in numerous experiments between international collaborators.
Students and staff alike were excited to visit the famous laboratory, which also houses the Large Hardon Collider, and all came away from the trip inspired by what they saw.
