Well, the Elite Scientists have been working really hard, with Kwaku Duah-Asante, their science partner. Over lockdown 3, they have been meeting Kwaku, almost every week to discuss their scientific poster and talk which they will present at the IRIS Virtual Science Conference (Institute for Research in Schools). They have been learning about what makes a good talk and poster, from Kwaku, so that they can be prepared. The final version of the poster is ready and will be printed for us. Over the past few weeks the students have created their poster and practiced their talk. The photos below show the first time the Elite Scientists met since the third lockdown, which is when they also practised their talk with Kwaku. The talk will be filmed by IRIS on Thursday 25th March 2021. This is all in anticipation of the IRIS Virtual Conference, that will take place on Thursday 13th May 2021. All this experience helps the Elite Scientists to act like scientists and see what that world is really like. They will give their talk and show their poster to students and academics all over the country on this day.

Well done Elite Scientists, and thank you Kwaku!!!
