Win an Atomic Getaway to Visit the Large Hadron Collider at CERN

CERNA team of the worlds brightest scientists from over 100 countries are working to simulate the Big Bang in a giant 17 mile long hadron collider, buried 574 feet below the earth. Why are they doing this? To prove the existence of the Higgs Boson particle which might just be the particle glue of the universe. This is CERN.

Sound awesome? It is and General Assembly, 3beards, Twilio and WAYN are offering you the chance to be a part of that awesomeness in person as part of their Accelera-tour.

The Accelera-tour

Enter General Assembly’s contest to win a trip to Geneva, Switzerland, the home of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider by May 3rd. To enter, just submit your email here. One winner will get:

  •  A tour of the Large Hadron Collider
  • Roundtrip airfare from anywhere in the UK or Germany
  • Two nights stay and transportation in Switzerland.

This contest follows the rules of the sub-atomic particle physics, meaning no two applicants can occupy the same place spot at the same time. Only one will win. Best of luck to everyone who applies!

    I like how you call Higgs Boson the “glue of the universe” when there is a different fundamental particle called Gluon which, in my opinion, earns that title. I think “glue of the Standard Model” is more appropriate.

      Good catch Brayden – and with well appreciated scientific knowledge.
