Independent Research Project Finals
Many congratulations to our six Upper Sixth Formers whose IRP projects were selected to go through to the final. This is a tremendous achievement, not least because there were 75 entries this year. The finalists and the title of their projects were:
Ben: Investigating the lift to drag ratio of an airfoil
Maddie: Cashless Society
Rhianna: Imperial Women
Mulang: How Should Programmers Beat the Time and Seize the Day (electronic version)
Leo: The Quantum Hall of Fame
Our panel of three external judges had difficulty deciding on a winner but eventually singled out Ben as the winner; Ben receives the Young Prize, worth £300 towards the cost of university books and resources. The runners-up, who also received prizes, were Mulang and Rhianna.
Many congratulations, too, to the three finalists of the Intermediate IRP. These three pupils presented their projects as part of the evening:
Ananya (Fifth Year): Explore the importance of a sense of ‘home’ in refugee literature
Michelle (Fifth Year): Is xenotransplantation a solution to organ failure?
Alex (Fourth Year): How is game theory used in the Prisoner’s Dilemma and the Game of Chicken?
The standard of these presentations was excellent and the overall winner was Ananya.Back to all news
