What is ORBYTS?

November 8, 2018 | NEWS

We are excited to announce that Marymount will be hosting ORBYTS (Original Research by Young Twinkle Scientists), an educational programme in which a group of selected students from Grades 10 and 11, along with a few guest students from a local Catholic state school, work on research linked to the Twinkle Space Mission under the mentorship of a UCL PhD student.

Our students will be learning University-level Physics and programming skills while analysing data that could then be published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

To mark the start of ORBYTS, seven students will attend its launch event at UCL this Friday evening, where they will tour UCL and attend talks from researchers such as Twinkle’s Science Lead, Professor Giovanna Tinetti.
