This must be the most exciting conference I have ever been invited to go on. To see the most up to date technology that is helping Scientists to understand more about the materials our universe is made from, is something that most Science teachers dream of !
The trip, from 15th -19th November, has been fully funded by an “Enthuse” Award from the National Science Learning Centre.
I thought I would post this picture of exactly what I am going to see and hopefully understand how it works.
This is the size of the donut shaped tunnels in Geneva ! They send tiny particles ( smaller than atoms) around these tunnels, to smash into each other. From all the bits that fly off, the Scientists can see what these particles are made from.
I will post more once I reach Geneva.
