HRH The Princess Royal presenting the University with the WISE award

Trish Goodchild, School of Science and Technology, The University of Northampton, received the WISE Outreach Award from HRH The Princess Royal, the Royal Patron of WISE, at the recent awards ceremony at the Institution of Engineering and Technology, Savoy Place, London.

We are absolutely thrilled to have our work recognised with a WISE Award. The Outreach Award in particular is given to a University who has implemented and is determined to sustain a set of successful outreach strategies to support and encourage more female students into STEM subjects.

The fact that The University of Northampton has an official ‘Champion for Girls’ in Trish is very impressive, together with the fact that they start their outreach activities early in primary school.

This was the second time in two months that Trish had met HRH The Princess Royal, following her visit in September to open the new Science and Technology building – Newton – at The University of Northampton’s Avenue Campus.
