SCHOOLS PHYSICISTS OF THE YEAR

Two students from our school attended the Schools Physicist of the Year Awards at The University of Kent, on 30th June. Our winners were Aiden Huynh-Nguyen, Year 12 and Stephanie Jackson, Year 10. These students were supported by their family and friends and follow a number of previous St Simon Stock students awarded this prize over the last few years.

 

The event was organised by the university and the Ogden Trust. The trust aims to increase the number of students taking physics at GCSE, A-level and at university and to support teachers of physics and encourage more physics graduates to become teachers, through its Schools Science Partnerships.

The event included a brief lecture about the formation of stars given by Dr Tim Kinnear. He used theoretical physics and computer modelling.to demonstrate how gas clouds collide to form stars. Mind-blowing!
