IPAS Student Prizes
On 27 January 2011, six IPAS students presented 5 minute talks with a chance to win one of two $1,000 prizes. The students presented about their current work and were judged by the IPAS Scientific Management Committee on clarity and effective and engaging communication and also on the science that they presented. The two categories were ‘Disciplinary Prize’ and ‘Merry Wickes Transdisciplinary Prize’.
Congratulations to Erik Schartner in Physics for winning the Merry Wickes Transdisciplinary Prize and to both Ori Henderson-Sapir in Physics and Janette Edson in Earth & Environmental Sciences for jointly winning the Disciplinary Prize. The prizes were presented to the students at the IPAS New Year Celebration on 28 Jan 2011 at Middlebrook Winery, McLaren Vale. Thank you to all members who attended the celebration.
We would also like to thank Merry for her support of the transcdiplinary prize.
