The Ogden Trust (www.ogdentrust.com) each year sponsor each school/college to nominate an outstanding year 12 Physics student to receive an award. Miriam Davies was this year's award winner from Cadbury College. She was chosen for her outstanding work and for gaining the top marks in the year.
The award was presented to Miriam at a special event held at Birmingham University School of Physics and Astronomy on Thursday evening 22nd June by the Ogden Trust. The award was presented by Professor Martin Freer, the head of the School of Nuclear Physics at the University.
The evening consisted of a tour of the first year laboratories, where many demonstrations had been set up, together with a buffet meal. This was followed by the award presentations and then a lecture by Professor Christina Lazzeroni on Particle Physics. Professor Lazzeroni is a leading researcher in CP violation in particles at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern.
Well done Miriam!
