The highlight of any science trip to Geneva has to be a visit to CERN. Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border and is the world’s largest particle physics laboratory. Here scientists from across the globe are using the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments like the Hadron Collider to revolutionise our understanding of the universe. Visits must be organised directly by the group leader, and offer your students unbeatable access to the scientists working on this global project.
Add a visit to the History of Science Museum, United Nations tour or a cruise around Lake Geneva to provide a well-rounded science itinerary that both inspires your budding scientists and showcases this stunning and cosmopolitan city.
