Young Scientists of the Year


The Young Scientists of the Year celebration is an opportunity for Oxfordshire’s secondary schools to nominate their best Year 13 students in Physics, Chemistry and Biology to be acknowledged for their outstanding efforts in science during the past year. The criteria used to select students is left up to each school; it could be based on exam results, progress made during the student’s course or recognition of their enthusiasm and commitment towards the subject. It is a fantastic feel-good event and a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge our young local science talent.

We will be hosting the award ceremony at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History on Wednesday 19 October from 18.00-20.00. In addition to a canapé reception in this historic building, there will be a keynote presentation given by Professor Paul Klenerman, the Sidney Truelove Professor of Gastroenterology, and short contributions from a number of inspirational young researchers and apprentices.

This event is supported by the Nuffield Department of Medicine and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
