Ogden Trust Lancashire Schools Physicist of the Year

Last night we held the Lancashire Schools Physicist of the Year award. I love this event. We write to all schools in the area that offer A level physics and ask them to select their top student. Some teachers choose students that are high achievers, others choose students who need a bit of a confidence boost.

We invite all the students, plus their proud families, to a nice awards evening, with a buffet and wine. They get to meet some of our research staff and then we have a public lecture from one of the researchers- last night Jo Bibby talked about her ‘Journey to the Stars’ a very inspiring tour of her research career and subject, which is the Death of Massive Stars.

The event is sponsored by the Ogden Trust- all the award winners become Ogden alumni and are eligible for scholarships and other benefits.

It’s a lovely event, meeting bright students and proud parents.
