CHS Bacon had the opportunity to visit North Anna nuclear power plant. We heard from engineers on site and learned about the process of harnessing nuclear and other types of energy.
As many of you know, it costs a lot of money to run BACON. In early April we are planning on sending 28 students on the CERN trip in europe to see the LHC! Unfortunately, the majority of the students come form low-income families and cannot afford the trip. If you would like to donate […]

BACON is a student-run organization at Charlottesville High School. Unfortunately, we get exactly $0.00 from our school to help us enter competitions, take field trips, and do cool projects. Please consider making a donation so we can continue to grow (we’ve currently got 100 members, about 10% of the student body) and have fun with […]
This coming April, 32 members of BACON will be taking a trip to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), in Geneva, Switzerland. This ten-day trip will include visits to Paris, Besançon (Charlottesville’s sister city), as well as Geneva. Check out the video to learn more: CERN Trip 2012! This trip […]
