Science and Technologies in Europe
Investigate scientific and technological concepts across Europe.
A 16-day itinerary designed specifically for senior secondary students of Science and Technology subjects, covering a broad range of concepts. Students will have the opportunity to meet scientists working in the field and learn about cutting edge design and technology in Europe. This tour travels through the European cities of London, Paris, Geneva and Munich and includes ‘behind-the-scenes’ visits to famous sites, such as the Tower Bridge and the Eiffel Tower. A highlight will be a visit to CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, whose purpose is to operate the world’s largest particle physics laboratory. On our 3 hour guided visit, students will see some of the surface installations of CERN’s experimental areas and learn about the fundamental research conducted here.
