STEM Inspiration Award winners head to CERN

This week the winners of the 2016 STEM Inspiration Awards will be heading to CERN - arguably the most famous research facility in the world.

Home of the world-famous Large Hadron Collider, CERN is the site of the discovery of the so-called ‘God particle’ - or Higgs boson. This unique site uses some of the world's most complex scientific instruments to study the fabric of the universe.

The winners of the 2016 STEM Inspiration Awards will be heading to Geneva on 26 January 2017 for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of CERN, courtesy of the Science and Technology Facilities Council.

The STEM Inspiration Awards recognise the work done across the UK to enrich the experience of young people around STEM subjects. Completely free to enter, the 2017 awards open in May.

You can find out more about the STEM Inspiration Awards on our dedicated webpage, including the lucky winners who will be visiting CERN.
