On Friday 25th September, Ollie Glover-Wilson, James Waszkiewicz, and Darius Zarrabian represented St Paul’s School at the annual Science Uncovered event at the Natural History Museum.

The students brought the school’s tabletop Scanning Electronic Microscope (SEM) to the event to share its extraordinary capabilities. According to the NHM 10,000 visitors were expected to pass through the hall where the SEM was stationed.

This event, in collaboration with NHM, was one of a number of charitable visits programmed for the SEM to celebrate research in materials science and share its capabilities wider afield.

The research-grade SEM was acquired earlier in the year to enable students to conduct their own research as part of the St Paul’s science curriculum. It is also intended for the SEM to become a research hub, sharing the facility in external schools and other educational establishments to encourage and inspire future generations in all aspects of science, especially materials science, as well as in geography and engineering.

For more information on the SEM programme or to propose any projects,please contact Dr James Perkins.

I was very proud to see our students develop rapport with group after group from 4pm to 10pm, explaining their science with admirable passion.
