The 2018 Star Centre Symposium was a huge success; the sun shone all evening as over 100 guests and students gathered in the school hall to be welcomed by Rebecca Robinson and Andrew Nicoll. This was followed by 15 presentations spread across three venues where the students outlined their research work and findings from the last year. This year we heard presentations on new work on the detection of Earthquakes, the use of LUCID data to generate random numbers and the composition of vaping fluids. Some of our longer standing projects, such as MBP2 also updated us on their work.
We continued to enjoy a glorious summer evening with refreshments and music outside in the court yard, while inside the new Tong Centre there was a poster session where guest were able to talk to students about their work. The evening was then finished off with inspirational talks from Prof Becky Parker, Director of the Institute for Research in Schools, and Professor Steve Rose, Professor of Plasma Physics at Imperial College, London.
A very enjoyable evening was had by all who attended, our thanks go out to everyone who helped prepare the students and support the evening. We very much look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s event!
