School Trips - Equity Science Trips to CERN
CERN, near Geneva in Switzerland, is the ideal destination for a Science school trip and will excite your students as they get close-up to the Large Hadron Collider, a colossal machine at the forefront of scientific experimentation and discovery.
Why should you consider Equity for School Trips and Educational Visits?
Since it was founded in 1954, CERN has been at the forefront of research in science, particle physics and leading-edge technologies. The thousands of scientists and engineers based here provide students with a glimpse of what it's like to experience a dynamic, international research environment.
Discover the quest for the origins of the universe and learn about the biggest particle accelerator in the world, the Large Hadron Collider. Students can study the laws of nature and discuss the importance of the Higgs boson particle at permanent exhibits like 'Universe of Particles' and 'Micrcosm'.
Across Lake Geneva lies the immense hydroelectric Emosson Dam. Surrounded by stunning scenery, students can learn about renewable energy, in particular hydroelectric power, and the output of the dam’s two stations, as well as its construction and design.
Bex Salt Mines
Visit the Bex Salt mines and discover a vast underground labyrinth and learn about the excavation techniques used from the 17th Century through to today. There’s almost 50 km of passages, including a train to take you to the heart of the mine. Chemistry students can learn about salt springs, the desalination of rock containing salt and more.
