Newsletter for the 2012 event

The eagerly awaited newsletter is here! In it you find details of what we did at Summer Scientist Week 2012 and all the things you helped us discover!

There are two versions of the newsletter to download – one is a smaller filesize, but it means the pictures are not so clear, and the other is a large filesize but has nice shiny pictures.

Thank you to everyone who came to the 2012 event and made it such a success! We could not do this without you!

There was a presentation ceremony on the 13th November where we were presented our prize by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Mary Stuart. We will link to more news from that event when it becomes available!

The Summer Scientist event has a place in all our hearts as a fantastic 5 days of fun and science involving students, staff and the local community. So, we are already planning next year’s event which we hope to be even better!
