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.
