Today, popular school trips destination CERN has announced the discovery of the illusive so called ‘God Particle’.
School trips to CERN over the past few years have been hearing about their search for the illusive Higgs boson particle at CERN. Today, CERN have announced that they have seen data worthy of a discovery, and will conduct more tests to find out if in fact they have ended the 45-year hunt for the Higgs boson. Click here to read the official CERN press release about the discovery.
Scientist Prof Peter Higgs, who formulated the original theory of the Higgs boson, and hence was subsequently named after him, today wiped a tear from his eye and stated “its really an incredible thing that it’s happened in my lifetime”.
For the past few years, Adaptable Travel have been organising school trips to CERN for UK school pupils to embark on their very own ‘hunt for Higgs’. This discovery will not only cement CERN’s position as the premier physics institution in the world, but will also make school trips to CERN that bit more exciting in the knowledge that the LHC and scientists pupils meet at CERN have made science history. A school trip to CERN really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see science history being made, and inspire a future generation of young scientists.
Adaptable Travel organise school trips to CERN from just £142 per paying passenger, and each student will also receive a free, full colour printed CERN study pack.
Contact Adaptable Travel today to organise your next school trip to CERN.
As an alternative, why not organise a trip to Science Discovered, which offers your pupils the chance to hear from and meet Prof Brian Cox. Click here to read more about Science Discovered.
