Science school trips to Geneva
With a focus on physics and chemistry, our suggested itinerary below will introduce your science students to nuclear research with a visit to CERN in Geneva, home to the European hub of nuclear research. The world’s largest particle physics research laboratory, where physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe, your group will learn about the major contributions that the 8000 scientists and engineers in the CERN community have made to the understanding of our universe. Across, on the other side of Lake Geneva, the hydroelectric power generator at The Emosson Dam, with its stunning views, will offer students the opportunity to learn about renewable energy and electricity. The Bex Salt Mines is another great opportunity to study chemistry. A labyrinth of passages and tunnels, students will visit the museum and mine, which today yields over 30,000 tons of salt each year.
