They visited the Palais des Nations and learnt about the current activities and history of the United Nations while seeing the spectacular assembly rooms.

A stop at the History of Science Museum gave students an insight into the evolution of astronomy and meteorology through their collection of scientific instruments.

The highlight of the stay was a visit to the Universe of Particles Exhibition at CERN.

Students learnt about nuclear science, the history of CERN and saw the first incarnation of the Hadron Collider.

Later, they visited the Natural History Museum and then took a boat trip across Lake Geneva.

They saw plasma made from argon gas at the Plasma Physics Centre in Lausanne and how Swiss chocolate was made at the Farvargern factory.

All students returned home very tired after a stimulating few days.
