Here’s an opportunity to win a trip for two for a six-day, two-continent science safari to some of the world’s leading scientific centres with the Massey Contest.
Enter the contest for a chance to go behind the scenes of fundamental science from quantum to cosmos at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Ontario, Canada. Then travel to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland to explore the world’s largest science experiment and epicentre of the recent Higgs boson discovery, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
To enter the contest and for full contest details, visit http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/masseycontest. The contest is open to residents of Canada and the United States, and closes on November 15, 2012. Some exclusions apply.
