    After class on Friday, thirteen Upper 6th Form boys flew from Edinburgh to Geneva, Switzerland, for the weekend to visit the world’s largest and most complex Physics experiment at CERN. At 27km long, the CERN particle accelerator is the largest machine ever made and is designed to study the smallest particles known to Physics. On Saturday we toured the CERN visitor centre, seeing first hand many of the experiments we have studied in our A Level Physics classes, before touring one of the original particle accelerators and the super conducting magnet factory.
    The trip wasn't all about Physics though and in our free time we were encouraged to enjoy all that Geneva had to offer including climbing Mount Saleve by cable car, visiting the United Nations building, the old town shopping areas, the Science museum and the impressive 140m tall fountain, to name but a few of the highlights. As this was our weekend break we had plenty of time to relax and try the excellent Swiss food including a traditional cheese fondue meal on our final night. Thanks must go to all the U6th form boys who made the trip so enjoyable and to Dr Mayoh and Mr Nicholls for accompanying us.

    Fahad, UVI
