Visiting the collider

SCIENCE students mingled with top physicists on a visit to the home of the Large Hadron Collider.

It is the second year the science department at Brooke Weston Academy in Corby has made a trip to the European Organisation for Nuclear Research in Geneva.

Teacher Peter Tiktin said: “The students had the opportunity to ask questions about physics in a real context and how scientists are actually investigating the first nano-seconds of what happened in the Big Bang.”
