This award aims to reward student(s) whose project has a tangible benefit for wider society and has considered the social and ethical impact of their findings. The winning student(s) will be passionate and enthusiastic communicators that enjoy sharing their work with others. The winning student(s) will receive £500 and a framed certificate, as well as the opportunity to visit the Royal Institution in London, and present their project in the iconic Faraday Lecture Theatre in front of an audience. The students will also receive training and support in how best to communicate their work. The Royal Institution is an independent charity dedicated to creating opportunities for everyone to discover, discuss and critically examine science and the way it shapes the world around us. We want to inspire everyone to think more deeply about science and its place in our lives. We host events at our world famous venue in London including the annual Christmas Lectures, and run a national programme of enrichment and enhancement activities across science, technology, engineering and maths: www.rigb.org
