Vinita Hassard

Imperial College London

Outreach Liaison Co-ordinator, Department of Physics

Vinita works for the Physics Outreach Department at Imperial 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 has a focus on encouraging more girls to study physics and on sharing physics with anybody willing to listen. She is an artist by training and has found a real passion for sharing and communicating anything which opens up the minds of young people. She uses her passion for the visual arts, poetry and science to inspire and facilitate learning. Vinita is a fully qualified teacher who has worked extensively in inner London schools with young people facing learning difficulties. Vinita's Ogden funding has ended, but she continues as Outreach Liaison Co-ordinator.
