Young Scientists of the Year
We believe that hard work, commitment and achievement in science should be recognised. That’s why we run the Young Scientists of the Year celebration, which honours some of our most outstanding Year 13 science students.
Teachers can nominate up to three students based on a number of criteria:
• Enthusiasm and commitment to a subject
• Going above and beyond i.e. mentoring another student
• Being creative their approach
• Progress made during their A-Level course (or equivalent)
• Overall excellence
The 2021 Young Scientist of the Year events will be taking place virtually, with special guest speakers from Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Dr Sean Ellis from University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute, where they can hear first hand about the development of AstraZeneca vaccine.
We are now taking applications for 2021 online award evening, please do complete the application form (coming soon).
