Daresbury Laboratory Trip

Year 12 students went to Daresbury Laboratory this week to look at particle accelerators and their applications, which include mapping the COVID-19 protein structure which aided rapid vaccine development, how they helped make chocolate less bitter, and also their normal application in discovering new subatomic particles. 

They got hands-on experience too exploring nuclear sources and shielding on university equipment and had various masterclasses from world leading experts.
