Year 12 ORBYTS project gathers pace!

Since October a group of Wimbledon High year 12 students have been joined by students from Tiffin Girls’ School to take part in the exciting Twinkle ORBYTS project. We have been working with scientists from UCL and Imperial College to explore exoplanets and their atmospheres. It has been fascinating to find out what is involved in scientific research, work alongside the space scientists, and to have the opportunity to gather data using robotic telescopes from around the world. On 28th March students from both schools the will visit UCL to present their project findings to the UCL Physics department and the other Twinkle schools. Watch this space to find out what they discover! Huge thanks to Dr Will Dunn for all his encouragement and to Jana and Sian, our visiting space scientists.
