University team is honoured for sharing the excitement of research

Published: 19 July 2012

The Solent Education Business Partnership (EBP) has recognised the achievements of the University of Southampton Bringing research to life roadshow team at its 2012 Amazing People Awards.

They won the award for the most innovative exhibit at a skills festival, careers event or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) science fair.

Academics from across the University highlight their cutting-edge research to members of the public in the roadshow through exciting and thought-provoking hands-on displays and demonstrations.

"We were delighted to be honoured by our partners at Solent EBP," says roadshow coordinator Dr Steve Dorney. "Our academics and students enjoy taking their research to a wider audience and we are pleased their efforts are appreciated."

During 2012, the team took the roadshow to the Big Bang event at Hampshire cricket's Rose Bowl, the Thomas Hardye School, Dorchester, the INTECH Science Centre and Planetarium, Winchester and Cheltenham Science Festival. They will also be at Bestival on the Isle of Wight in September. It is estimated the roadshow will reach 10,000 people over the year.
