Acting Director's Message
I hope you all enjoyed a great long weekend with lots of fun celebrating Australia Day!
Last week the School hosted the last group of 28 NYSF students who visited the department of Nuclear Physics and Electronic Materials Engineering. Overall, RSPE welcomed four groups of NYSF students and a group of secondary school teachers. Thank you to all students and staff who contributed their time to host the students and teachers as it is a wonderful outreach opportunity for the School and the University that has proven to be fostering a new generation of science enthusiasts! See the happy faces in the picture above.
This was also the last week for most of our Summer Research Scholars and interns who presented their final talks on Thursday 24 January. A lot of the students talked about the great experience they have had while working at RSPE. We wish them all the best and hope to see some of them return to us as Honours and PhD students!
The Summer School on the Invisible Universe is now over. Thank you to the lecturers who dedicated their time in the middle of the summer to make this school a success.
The below picture was taken at the Physics in the Pub in the Pop Up Village organised by Phil Dooley. Thank you to those who shared their passion about Physics and Astronomy with the 200 persons who attended.
Finally, if you would like to have your ARC DP or DECRA application peer reviewed, you need to meet the Research Office’s standard review deadline of Wednesday Jan 30; If any of you would like to OPT OUT of the peer review process (even if you plan to submit by Jan 30), please let Ken Baldwin and Elena Ostrovskaya know by COB Wednesday 30 Jan.
Have a great (short) week!
