CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world's largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of nature.
Why We Participate
There are some 10,000 scientists from all over the world working at CERN who are expected to shed light on some of the mysteries of our Universe. Twelve Intel ISEF finalists will be selected for an all-expenses paid trip to travel to CERN, meet with several of these researchers, see the experiments, discover Geneva and the beauty of Switzerland and France. This award is made possible by cooperative grants from Intel and CERN, which collaborate in the framework of CERN openlab.
