About Us

The Ogden Trust's educational bursaries and grants were first conceived by Peter Ogden during 1998 and launched in 1999. The Trust's aim is to maximise the opportunities available to young people in all parts of the UK's educational system and is now focused on science, particularly physics. The Trust supports a range of initiatives, programmes and projects to promote the teaching and learning of physics.

I get really fed up with people thinking it is cool not to understand science. People are horrified if you rubbish Shakespeare, but quite proud to admit to not being able to change a plug. But who couldn't love physics? It's all about why we're here. It's about life itself. How could it not be fascinating?
