Students Take a Dream Trip to CERN

A Dream Trip to CERN

Aspiring Students at the British International School of Tbilisi (BIST) recently embarked on an unforgettable educational adventure, fulfilling a dream for many science enthusiasts: a visit to the European Organization for Nuclear Research, also known as CERN!

Located near Geneva, Switzerland, CERN is the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, renowned for groundbreaking research in fundamental physics.  BIST students had the incredible opportunity to tour CERN’s state-of-the-art facilities and delve into the fascinating world of particle accelerators and atom-smashing experiments.

The highlight of the trip was undoubtedly the chance to meet Dr. Irakli Minashvili, a leading researcher and the head of the ATLAS experiment, one of the largest and most complex scientific instruments ever built.

But the learning extended beyond the realm of particle physics. The BIST students also broadened their horizons with visits to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva. Here, they gained a deeper understanding of humanitarian efforts and the importance of international cooperation.  To round out their enriching experience, the students explored the wonders of the Natural History Museum of Geneva, delving into the natural world and its captivating mysteries.

This incredible trip provided BIST students with an invaluable hands-on learning experience, they were inspired to ask questions, develop critical thinking skills, and foster a lifelong love of learning.
