Students & Educators

CERN values its interaction with students and educators. A number of educational programmes, guided tours and summer schools are available for students and teachers, to help both groups learn more about CERN, particle physics and our place in the universe.


  • Why not spend your summer participating one of our teacher programmes?
  • You could arrange a visit to S'Cool LAB, where students can do hands-on experiments in particle physics.
  • Or arrange a visit to CERN for you and your class?



  • Check out the interactive games and puzzles at CERNland
