The Science tutor who organised for the students to be involved in Project M was Fumbi Mhlanga. He explained what a fantastic opportunity the experiment is:
"This is very exciting as our learners are participating in an experiment which has never been done before meaning that what ever is discovered will be new to science.
"This is amazing and mind boggling because all participants will have a paper published in a renowned scientific journal something which most science graduates never achieve".
Professor Andrew Harrison from Diamond said:
“Project M has been a great way to give the students an experience of the tools used in a world-class science facility, and an insight into how our users work.
“We’re hoping that some of those that take part have been inspired to choose a career in science and that we’ll welcome them as scientists working here at Diamond in the near future.”
