A group of Witchford Village College students enjoyed a trip to Geneva.
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.
