"The S’Cool workshops at CERN really are the best way to get students to comprehend the awe and wonder of modern Physics. They tie in directly with Year 12 material. It's also a great way to entice Year 11s to take up Physics for A level. Some of them who were on our trip have already said they will."

Ben Ford, Head of Physics, St Dunstan's College, south east London
