Physics

Imagine yourself waking up in the morning to explore the same halls walked by the greatest physicists of the past, tracing their work through historical and scientific perspectives.  Or maybe you would rather shoot for an internship at CERN, the world’s largest particle accelerator where the earth-shattering discovery of the Higgs Boson just transpired.
