Following the Senior (Sixth Form) Independent Research Prize Finals Night a fortnight ago comes the Intermediate (Fourth & Fifth Year) IRP Finals Night. This evening will showcase the research and intellectual endeavour of the middle school with six finalists chosen from a very strong field.
Each finalist will present his / her research and then field questions from the audience (see the questions facility below). Prepare to be blown away by some of Caterham’s brightest young scholars!

* Xavier P (Fifth Year): An investigation into the effects of different activation functions in neural networks.
* Pia S (Fifth Year): Was Nero’s love for spectacle the obsession of a deranged egomaniac or a considered policy?
