18 Jan Lecture on MRI
On Wednesday 6th January, as part of our Science Specialism, our Year 10 students saw a lecture by Dr Andy Scott, a scientist working on MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) technology at Royal Brompton Hospital and Imperial College London. The lecture focused firstly on an introduction to MRI and the links this has with our students’ learning for GCSE, such as diffusion in Biology and waves in Physics, and secondly to encourage students to take part in a new project. Our students were invited to apply for ‘Project D’, a project involving several workshops at Imperial College, Royal Brompton Hospital and Chelsea Academy assisting Dr Scott with his research. The successful applicants will be announced soon. We will report on the ongoing project in future the updates.
