iaps2CERN trip 2016

In the last week of April almost 50 students met in Geneva, Switzerland to visit CERN. The annual excursion organised by the IAPS EC always reached a high number of interested physics students from all over the world. This year highly motivated people from 15 different countries spent two days at the CERN facilities. Apart from listening to a lecture and building their own cloud chamber, they also walked underground at the CMS detector site.
If you are interested in the excursion for next year, note it down now. The registration will be open again in December.
