IEGS recently had two classes carry out their group four science project. For this year student groups had to analyze, design and create a plan to rescue the science staff on Mars. The students were to imagine that in the year 2046 a theoretical problem of resupplying and keeping alive an eight person group that had an accident on a Mars colony. A total of 10 groups competed for best design and analysis to help with biological, chemical and physics issues. The problem solving ranged from how much food and water to send to what type of rocket and trajectory to propose. The winning three

Which obviously is a thing we all talk about on a daily basis. It is an electron accelerator, producing X-rays. Which might be even more confusing.
My name is Matilda Froste. I was one of the in total twelve girls who had sent in a contribution to a physics competition that would take us to ESRF and the city in which it lies. We quickly realised using English as a mean of communication in France wasn’t the most
