South Sefton Sixth Form - Matthew Latham, Josh Warren, Conor Williams and Andrew Wong
Students from South Sefton Sixth Form will be jetting off to the final frontiers of physics after winning a college essay writing competition. The students have been invited to visit CERN (the European organisation for nuclear research), the world's largest particle research laboratory in Geneva, along with other students from across the region and UK.
Matthew Latham, Josh Warren, Conor Williams and Andrew Wong, each researched one of the experiments that has been carried out at CERN and wrote an essay describing what happened and how it increased scientific knowledge. The trip has been organised by the University of Liverpool and is funded by the Ogden Trust, a charity which aims to promote study of Physics in Sixth Form and at University. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for the budding South Sefton physicists to spend three days at CERN, where they will tour the site and take part in a series of exciting workshops exploring particle research.
