Our flagship programme, S'Cool LAB Days at CERN, offers a unique opportunity for high school students (aged 16-19) and their teachers to contribute to CERN’s Physics Education Research. Highlights of this full-day itinerary include guided tours of CERN's research facilities, as well as several hands-on physics experiments in S'Cool LAB, CERN's particle physics learning laboratory and physics education research facility. To make the most of their time on-site, students prepare themselves for their visit by following mandatory courses on our dedicated online learning platform. Questionnaires before, during and after the visit allow CERN to gather empirical research data about teachers' and students' experience.
