Every year NUSTEM is pleased to host the School Physicist of the Year Awards, proudly sponsored by the Ogden Trust, to celebrate the talent of exceptional physics students from across the region.
The 2019 awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 20th of June 2019 at Northumbria University and registration is now open to nominate students and to RSVP to the event (see below),
The 2018 edition saw 26 year 10 students from 16 local secondary schools being formally and publicly recognise for their excellence and efforts in physics.
Last year Professor Rebecca Strachan welcomed the nominees and their guests to the University, and reflected on her own career path from chemistry to digital learning. This was followed by a lecture on the Sun’s effects on the Earth by Professor James McLaughlin.
Across the UK, 25 School Physicist of the Year events take place annually, with more than 600 students recognised for their achievement and effort in physics, including many Year 6 primary students.
