Physics Awards Ceremony

On Thursday afternoon we had the Physics Awards 2016 ceremony. It was a lovely afternoon celebrating some of the great stuff that goes on and the fab people that make up the Physics Department here!

There were lots of awards, from the ‘Makes a Difference’ awards and ambassador of the year to the ‘Most Flamboyant Department Member’. The Department asked for nominees in each category and everyone studying physics was able to vote for the winners. We even had live voting for some of the fun awards on the day!

There was also a photography competition including categories such as ‘Astronomy’ and ‘Life in the Department’. It produced some absolutely stunning photographs!!

Everything was accompanied by fabulously awful jokes from the Head of the the Department Professor Sarah Thompson.

The event was organised by a committee of students and staff and finished off with an after party in the evening!

All the award winners!
