A team of research students at Derby College Group have been honoured with a national award for a project focussing on the Covid pandemic.

The Science T-Level, Year 1 students explored different governments’ responses, those in the UK and New Zealand, to the pandemic and the impact various restrictions had on the number of Covid deaths.

The students have now been recognised at the prestigious IRIS (Institute for Research in Schools) Awards, winning Best Research Team in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the field of research.

The IRIS Awards are an opportunity to celebrate students’ research and showcase their work to acclaimed scientists and educators.

The DCG students competed against 203 schools and colleges across the UK to secure the prize, with the award being presented by Dame Kate Bingham, who led the UK Government’s Vaccine Taskforce during the Covid pandemic.

Matt Ridgill, assistant principal at DCG, said: “This recognition demonstrates the dedication and passion that DCG, our teachers and our students bring to their research endeavours. It is a testament to their commitment to excellence and their tireless pursuit of knowledge.”
