Students from The British School of Beijing (BSB) Shunyi will embark on an exciting 1 week trip from 28th September to 4th October, 2016 to Geneva, Switzerland. This year we are taking 12 students, including one former BSB student who has moved to our sister school, The British International School Shanghai, Puxi.
The aims of the trip are to:
• Provide a unique opportunity to see and experience closely the most exciting physics research lab in the world.
• Introduce students to university level scientific research and give them an opportunity to talk to researchers, professors and students from all over the world.
• Inspire students into this field of science and help them to develop new interests in: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
We will spend a whole day at CERN, home to the Large Hadron Collider, and the world centre for particle Physicists. Our students will also have tours of both the United Nations and Red Cross headquarters, which are both located in Geneva. And this year we have been invited for lunch and a tour of College Du Leman, one of our sister Nord Anglia schools which is situated along the banks of Lake Geneva. There we will be making radioactive cloud chambers!

Thank you for you continued support and encouragement
