At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.
S'Cool LAB is a Physics Education Research facility at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland. S'Cool LAB offers high school students and their teachers from around the world the chance to take part in hands-on & minds-on particle physics experiment sessions on-site at CERN. In addition, S'Cool LAB drives the development of low-cost hands-on learning activities to support teachers in their challenging endeavour of introducing particle physics into their classrooms.
As S'Cool LAB manager, you will manage all existing programmes and activities with approx. 8000 participants per year and you will have the opportunity to develop future activities and shape future programmes together with a team of Doctoral students, administrative and technical support.
