Help BACON get to CERN!


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 and help us send these kids (who love science and want to learn more about it) to CERN click on the GoFundMe link below and donate!

Thank you so much for your support!
