Lucy is awarded the UNSW Medal for Science Communication 2015

Lucy is in Sydney at the moment, where she was just awarded the UNSW Medal for Science Communication. Go Lucy!

Lucy and her father Stephen were honoured by the UNSW Dean of Science before the two “appeared” at a sold out public lecture at the Sydney Opera House on Sunday. We’re using inverted commas as Stephen Hawking appeared as a hologram, wowing the Sydney audience. Stephen was in Cambridge at the time, but appeared on stage as a 3D hologram, to give a talk on the night. How cool is that?

Lucy and Stephen were congratulated on their outstanding contribution to the communication of science. Lucy said it was a very great honour to receive the UNSW medal and to share it with her father.
