KGV College’s Physics & Electronics department is organising its inaugural student trip to Geneva, Switzerland, to visit CERN from Wednesday 18th March to Friday 20th March.
Peter Ware, Physics Course Leader, said: “This will be an excellent opportunity for our students to see the relevance of the theory they have studied at KGV, and how it is used in this cutting edge research.”
CERN, which stands for “Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire”, or European Council for Nuclear Research, was founded in 1952 with the aim of establishing a world-class fundamental physics research organisation.
The main area of research at CERN is Particle Physics – the study of the fundamental elements of matter and the forces acting between them to provide insights into the fundamental laws of nature – which is one of the main topics of the AS syllabus that is taught at KGV College.
KGV students and staff will also have the chance to visit the UN Palace of Nations Building and the History of Science Museum along with a ‘Swiss Fondue Experience’ Cruise on Lake Geneva.
We are looking forward to seeing the photographs from the trip.
