Winners of the Olympiads in Exact and Natural Sciences, the best students from Buckswood School of Science together with their teachers travelled to Switzerland, at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN).
The visit was made possible, within the scope of the project, initiated by the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Georgia, which aims to attract and interest young generation in physics, fundamental research, engineering, IT technologies and mathematics.
During their several-day visit to CERN, the students met with Georgian and foreign scientists, got acquainted with the latest technologies, new discoveries and important projects that CERN scientists are currently working on. Students got acquainted with Atlas and CMS experiments of Georgian scientists: Irakli Minashvili and Alexander Mestvirishvili, which takes place in a 90 meters deep ultra-modern laboratory. The Atlas and CMS experiments are among the three largest experiments on a large hadronic collider.
The European Organization for Atomic Research (CERN) is the world's largest laboratory for particle physics. We are especially proud of the fact that alongside foreign scientists, Georgian scientists are actively involved in research.
