Sidmouth College science students visit Switzerland
Sidmouth College students recently returned from an inspiring trip to Switzerland, where they learned about cutting edge scientific developments.
The A-level physics and chemistry pupils visited the European Centre for Nuclear Research in Geneva.
The centre is home to the large Hadron Collider, the biggest particle collider ever made.
Mrs Calvert, who led the trip, said it was a great experience for the students to be part of a research environment and see some of the world’s leading brains in action.
“They were discussing tricky problems in corridors, scribbling equations on whiteboards, and generally getting stuck into blue-sky thinking to change the world,” she said.

She added that seeing the sights of Geneva, a stunning city full of multi-national people, was also an “enlightening experience”.
The students travelled to Switzerland just before Easter.
