Nicole Richardson awarded poster prize

(4 September 2017)

Congratulations to recent Durham Chemistry graduate Nicole Richardson, who won the Learning Science poster prize 2017 at the recent Variety in Chemical Education / Physics Higher Education national conference in York. Nicole’s poster, presented at her first academic conference, was pitted against all the other delegates, including academic staff from institutions across the UK and beyond, and impressed the judges with both its clarity of presentation and research content. The winning poster summarised the work Nicole carried out during her fourth year chemical education research project with Dr Robson, completed as part of her MSci degree in Chemistry and Physics. Nicole’s work investigated students’ approaches to problem solving in physical chemistry, and her prize included a new Amazon Fire tablet. Well done, Nicole!
