Our projects are available for UK state secondary schools, sixth forms and colleges. They are free and fully supported by our team.
Collaborate for change. Students work with their school to quantify its carbon footprint and develop a plan to decrease its environmental impact.
An investigation of trees. Students contribute to the ultimate survey map of the UK’s tree canopy and learn how climate change is impacting our ecosystem.
Explore the Universe. Students develop skills in spectral analysis and learn about the evolution of stars and other stellar objects. Their work could help scientists find targets for the James Webb Telescope.
Delve deeper into the Earth’s biosphere. Students use satellite data to measure and research changes within our landscape, from forest fires to penguin migration patterns.
Redefine their understanding of DNA. Students explore DNA as a building material and learn how its molecular structure lends itself to more than biological code.
Innovate for greener flight. Students investigate the engineering and economic challenges of hydrogen-electric aircraft.
Unravel the mysteries of the Universe. Students learn the analytical and coding methods used by particle physicists to find evidence of the Higgs boson.
Unlock big data. Students learn the art of data science through contextual learning. They investigate trends using the global Covid-19 data.
Synthesise and investigate ionic liquids. Students experience the creativity of scientific research.
Explore innovative chemistry. Students learn how research can contribute to better world.
Discover the unknown. With unrivalled access to its network of academics and institutions, IRIS supports students conducting original research.
