Our funding for the National Space Academy helps expand their network of expert teachers. Delivering throughout the UK, they inspire greater achievement in maths and physics by supporting both teachers and school students.
For the second year in a row, the network celebrates one of their lead experts winning the Royal Astronomical Society's Patrick Moore Medal awarded for a particularly noteworthy contribution to astronomy or geophysics by secondary-school-level teachers. Sarah Llewellyn-Davies from Castell Alun High School in Flintshire, aided by our funding, helps drive the development of the Academy's activities in Wales. She joins last years winner, Hayley Flood.
