PLEASE NOTE: THE COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENTRIES
Launched in 2015, the XMaS Scientist Experience is a national competition for Year 12 UK identifying as female Physics students to win an all expenses paid 4-day trip to the ESRFLink opens in a new window in Grenoble, France towards the end of June 2022.
To encourage students to consider science careers, foster a sense of community, encourage self-belief.
We don’t need applicants to already excel at physics, but we do want female students who are curious about the world around them, who are creative and keen to learn more about science and who are willing to share their enthusiasm.
Through this competition we take students out of the classroom and show them science in a real-world application, with the aim of sparking an enthusiasm for the wonder of science. This is a tremendous opportunity to see for yourself just how far science can take you, so if you know a Year 12 female student who would benefit please do encourage her to apply.
How to apply:
Students are asked to write a two page essay on 'Ada Yonath: her life and contributions to science' and to tell us more about 'What is XMaS, in which ways do you expect to benefit from the visit to the European Synchrotron Research Facility and how might the visit affect your future career?'
Deadline for entry submission: midnight on Sunday 27th February 2022
