Interactive video lesson plan for: Improving Gender Balance: Student-led research project

Activity overview:

A group of students at Ruislip High School in West London are participating in a project called the Drayson Pilot Programme, run in association with the Institute of Physics. You can find out more about the Drayson Pilot Programme by visiting this link: http://www.iop.org/education/teacher/...

This is a scheme that is exploring the issues around gender and subject choice in schools. As a consequence, they have set up a student-led research group called RISE-UK (Radiation in Soil Experiment), which aims to create a radiation map of the UK. The group is made up of 25 Year 10 and 11 girls who are now expert at using a Timepix detector which is the same as those used in the ATLAS and MoEDAL experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. From this they are able to find out the exact type and amount of radiation emitted from soil around the country.
