Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

(Above) The Mis­bourne School STEM club with as­sis­tant cur­ricu­lum leader Anita Kapila, Dr Pas­cal Dur­ren­burger and science tech­ni­cian Mrs Flint; (be­low) STEM club mem­ber Fitzroy Schofield at the re­cent Young Sci­en­tist Day; (bot­tom) STEM mem­bers Jes­sica Bex, David Clarke and Ravi Parekh mon­i­tor their brain waves CHIL­DREN are tak­ing part in a science fes­ti­val for the first time this week­end.

Eleven key stage three stu­dents from the Mis­bourne School STEM Club will be ex­hibit­ing their Brain­wave Project at Im­pe­rial Col­lege’s Science Fes­ti­val, along­side 400 other sci­en­tists and en­gi­neers.

The Brain­wave Project is funded by The Royal So­ci­ety, which awarded Anita Kapila, the as­sis­tant cur­ricu­lum leader, a grant of about £3,000.

Dr Pas­cal Dur­ren­berger, a re­search as­so­ciate within brain sciences at ICL, has sup­ported the project and has worked tire­lessly with the STEM stu­dents, en­abling them to col­late all their data and help­ing them an­a­lyse it.

Ms Kapila said she is im­mensely proud of the STEM Club stu­dents and con­fi­dent that they will be able to ex­plain and demon­strate their re­search at the ex­hi­bi­tion.

En­try to the ex­hi­bi­tion is free and the school hopes that many Mis­bourne stu­dents and their fam­i­lies will go along to sup­port the STEM team.
