Professor Becky Parker, Director, Institute for Research in Schools: IRIS (Institute for Research in Schools) - opportunities to develop and deliver research projects in local and regional schools
Physical Sciences colloquia

IRIS makes cutting edge research projects open to school students and their teachers. We do this by making data accessible to schools and also by lending out kits. We support schools across the country and many teachers find our research programmes reinvigorating CPD for them. We have national programmes on space science, particle physics, chemistry, environmental science, antibiotic resistance, engineering, wellbeing and genomics. The talk will outline opportunities for you to get involved or develop similar approaches with local and regional schools based on your research. The University of Kent has already run some amazing research projects with schools.
