    On the 23rd of June, Miss Porter, Mr Blair and Mr Sayer took 8 students to the STEM IRIS Conference at the Congress Centre in London. IRIS stands for The Institute for Research in Schools and they provide support to schools to run a variety of STEM projects. Students from Year 10 and Year 12 have been working incredibly hard all year on a Cosmic Mining Project, in which they have been analysing the spectra of stars and classifying objects identified by the Spitzer Space Telescope. The goal was to identify further targets for the recently launched James Webb Telescope to study. Our students worked incredibly hard and contributed to real life science! The conference gave the students an excellent opportunity to showcase their work, talk to other schools about their projects, and to listen and talk to inspirational scientists. The conference was an inspiration to how students can progress in STEM and maybe one day become a scientist and change the world!
