THREE budding scientists showed off their work at a national exhibition aimed at inspiring the next generation.

The showcase that was recently held in London saw Chipping Campden School students join their counterparts from across the UK to show off their research findings at the third annual celebration of the Institute for Research in Schools (IRIS) at The Francis Crick Institute.

Charlotte Gravelsons and Charlotte Johnson, both in Year 11, and Charles Thomas in Year 13, presented their work to an audience of scientists, journalists and business people.

Charles has previously presented his work at Oxford University, as part of the Higgs Hunter project linked to CERN research on the Higgs-Boson particle, while Charlotte Gravelsons’ project on the impact of global warming caught the attention of the BBC Science editor, David Shukman, with him describing her work as “phenomenal”.

Professor Becky Parker MBE, IRIS director, said “Huge congratulations to our student scientists at Chipping Campden School.

"It was wonderful to celebrate their important contribution at our third anniversary event.

"Now is the time to nurture these young scientists if we want to bridge the gap between supply and demand in the industry.”
