SPEND A FULL WEEK AT CERN FOR A CERTIFIED MASTERCLASS CURATED BY SENIOR SCIENTISTS.

Visit LIVE EXPERIMENT SITES and specialised research facilities.

Interact with GLOBAL EXPERTS in Cosmology, Antimatter, Super Symmetry and much more.

Learn about ENGINEERING, Cryogenics, GRID COMPUTING and Superconductivity.

BUILD your own EXPERIMENTAL EQUIPMENT guided by experts.

Every year, select students have the opportunity to participate in this extended training visit at CERN. This specialised visit goes beyond the public exhibitions and introduces students and teachers to the experiments and the scientists who are creating history.

ABOUT CERN

Home to the World Wide Web, the 27 km long Large Hadron Collider and the Nobel Prize winning discovery – the Higgs Boson – CERN is the epicentre of cutting edge research in the field of High Energy Physics, Engineering and Computer Science.

At CERN, over 10,000 scientists and engineers from all over the world are studying the origins of life and matter.
