Year 13 showcase their research

On Wednesday 14 March, nearly 60 of our Year 13 students presented the findings of their EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) in Myton’s first ever EPQ marketplace event.

Successful examples this year included investigations into: the youth justice system, whether what we observe is real, the role of the media in the England football team’s fortunes, dinosaurs, portrayals of difficult storylines in Eastenders, the captivity of orca whales, medicinal cannabis and several about AI (artificial intelligence), robotics and even quantum computing.
