The Ogden Trust has built links with universities across the UK via a network of Ogden outreach officers who are based in physics departments and are part-funded by the Trust.
Ogden outreach officers support local teachers, provide enrichment and enhancement activities for under-represented groups and support undergraduate and postgraduate students to work with schools.
My Ogden role has enabled me to give outreach a higher profile within my department, and I am very proud to lead that change. I am increasing the university's interaction with schools and society, and making it a priority for the department. I love being in contact with cutting-edge research at the university; being able to transmit this knowledge and passion to children and their families through outreach is very rewarding.
