Launched in 2015, the XMaS Scientist Experience is a UK national competition for Year 12 female Physics students to win an all expenses paid 4-day trip to the ESRF in Grenoble, France.
To encourage young women to consider science careers, foster a sense of community, encourage self-belief.
You don't need to excel at Physics to have a chance to win. Be passionate, be creative, share you enthusiasm with us!
This year, students are asked to write a two page essay on 'Jocelyn Bell Burnell: her contributions to science and her role in the advancement of women in STEM subjects' 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: Wednesday 12th February 2020.
Alternatively, come and pay a visit to our XMaS stand at the University of Warwick's Science Gala, which will take place on Wednesday 5th February 2020
XMaS Scientist Experience 2020 details:
The trip will take place 28th June-1st July 2019. Students will experience what life might be like as an international research scientist. They will visit the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and take part in the Synchrotron@School Programme.
