Edward Delaval event 2016

By Lorna Davis

Physics students at the University of Lincoln have been recognised at a prize giving event for their hard work and effort on the course.

As the first cohort of Physics students at the University, staff thought an award ceremony at Doddington Hall would be a nice way to end the year.

Christopher Dickens was awarded the special Edward Delaval award. Christopher was presented with the award by Mrs Claire Birch of  Doddington Hall. Two commendations certificates were given to Hannah Thurlbeck and Robert Sharp, whilst Aaron Adams received commendation for his Physics Experimental Work. The commendations were presented to the students by Professor Toshihiro Kawakatsu from Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, who is a member of our school’s External Advisory Board.

The student-lead Physics Society even gave out their own certificate for the staff member they felt they’ve got the most out of this year.

Lecturer Manuela Mura was awarded this and she was delighted to have been chosen. Students picked their favourite tutor through an online poll.

Manuela said: “It is lovely that the students recognise my commitment to their progress. I am delighted to be acknowledged in this way, positively contributing to our students’ experience.  I am pleased to be part of the early stages of our Schools development.”

The sun was shining throughout the day as everyone toured the beautiful grounds, learned about Edward Delaval and his family history and Doddington Hall.

We hope all our Physics and Maths students have a great summer, whatever they end up doing. Take care and see you in September!
