Dr Sarah Hutton

University College London

Outreach Co-ordinator

Sarah works for the Physics & Astronomy Department at University College London, developing and delivering outreach activities for local schools, supporting the Ogden partnerships in the region and supporting academics in their outreach efforts. She is also developing new outreach activities based at the University of London Observatory (ULO), which is situated in Mill Hill in North London. She has a focus on encouraging more girls to study physics and on sharing physics with anybody willing to listen.

During her PhD in Astrophysics at Durham University she found a real passion for sharing and communicating science with local primary and secondary schools, designing fun and engaging activities as well as offering careers sessions for interested students.

Sarah is also a fully qualified teacher having completed her PGCE on the INSPIRE course at Imperial College London and teaching at an all girls school in St Albans. During this time, she joined her school to the local Ogden Trust partnership and encouraged many girls who had previously not considered it to take physics to A-level and beyond.
