MTGS Physicists Win a Trip to Grenoble
Earlier in the year lower sixth Physicists took part in the XMaS competition launched nationwide by Warwick University with help from IGGY, Sepnet, STEMNet, Ogden Trust and the Institute of Physics.
Students were asked to write a two page essay on “What is the legacy of Kathleen Lonsdale both in terms of her scientific discoveries and for women in science?” All the girls produced fantastic entries, adding their own little touches to get themselves noticed by the judges, including a rap, sway presentation and a glittery structural model of benzene!
The prize… A four day all-expenses paid trip to visit the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble! Taking part in the Synchrotron@Schools Programme whilst touring the XMaS Beamline, meeting scientists from a range of disciplines as well as having the chance to explore the beautiful city of Grenoble.
A huge congratulations to the following girls whose essays and creativity massively impressed the judges, securing four of the 16 winning spots on this once in a lifetime trip:
The trip will take place 2nd-6th July 2017, well done girls!!
