Centre Undergraduate Researcher receives Warwick Advantage Award
Congratulations to Alex Mockridge, one of the Undergraduate Researchers working for the Reinvention Centre, for winning a Warwick Advantage Award. The Warwick Advantage programme is an initiative aiming to encourage extracurricular achievements, which can be recognised through the presentation of Warwick Advantage Awards.
Alex had this to say:
"My work as an Undergraduate Researcher was a key part of the grounds for my receiving a Warwick Advantage Award. It contributed to all four sections of the award: "Involvement, Inclusion and Interaction"; "Teamwork and Leadership Skills"; "Community" and "Events and Initiatives". Particularly in terms of teamwork, communication and in event planning and management I found that the skills and experiences accrued through working for the Reinvention Centre helped me fulfil the requirements for the award."
