Claire Le Cras, a third year PhD student at the ICG, has won the Institute of Physics 2014 Early Career Physics Communicator Award. As reported last week, Claire was nominated for her public engagement and outreach work, in particular her innovative project explaining astrophysical concepts through dance.
At the final judging and prizegiving for the award Claire showed a preview of the video she has made using footage from her dance workshop earlier in the year. The three minute video follows the life cycle of a massive star interpreted and performed by seven young dancers from Guernsey. Claire now plans to add narration to the video before uploading it to the ICG website.
