Orchid Project at the Launch of new Royal Society report
Today is the launch of the Royal Society’s Vision report for the future of science and maths education https://royalsociety.org/education/policy/vision/ and Writhlington has been involved through student Zoe Barnes and teacher Simon Pugh-Jones.
The pair were invited to a breakfast meeting at the House of Lords, with parliamentarians and leading scientists, where Zoe started the meeting by describing her experience of science education. Lord Robert Winston described Zoe’s contribution as very significant and likely to have a big influence of future uk science policy. Well done Zoe.
The day continued with a personal tour of the House of Lords by Robert Winston, a working lunch at the Royal Society and participation in the public launch event in Central London.
A tiring day but an excellent opportunity to meet people and develop our network of supporting scientists.
