Geneva is a fascinating city and a fantastic destination for a science trip. Not only will a guided visit of the CERN institute allow students to understand more about particle physics and the origins of the universe but it will inspire them to want to know more. Other scientific visits include the History of Science Museum and ICT Discovery which is the latest addition to the museums in the city.
ICT tells the story of information and communications technology from within the industry and suggests the evolution of ICT in the future. It is also possible to arrange a guided visit to the World Meteorological Organisation and additional visits can include the United Nations and Red Cross Museum.
