Two APS Physics students have been awarded the Queen Mary's University Physicist of the Year award. Queen Mary University run this award to allow different schools across London to reward a GCSE student for their contribution and aptitude for physics. Kelly Fitzgerald, year 12 and Liliana Newsam-Smith, year 10, attended an awards evening at Queen Mary University last week, which consisted of a lecture and several demonstrations. Here are the reasons why Kelly and Liliana were nominated.
Kelly was nominated for her consistently impressive physics exam results and her enthusiasm for the primary school science club, where she planned and lead science club sessions at a local primary school. Liliana was nominated for her impressive physics exam results and for her enthusiasm for the Highgate masterclasses.
