Certificate of Achievement for the North-West Science Alliance

Within the scientific community there are a great many hard-working, dedicated people who give up their free time to advance the general public’s understanding of science.  The North-West branch of the British Science Association is a typically vibrant team who work tirelessly to help inform, inspire and educate.

Amongst the many successes of this dedicated community that provides speakers, organises science festivals, SciBars (a science presentation in a pub), workshops and other hands-on events, there is the North-West Science Alliance (NWSA). This long-standing organisation has acted as a facilitator bringing together the public, science industries, schools, colleges and universities and fosters co-operation between these diverse bodies.

Lorelly Wilson, as Chairperson of the NWSA and the Chair/Secretary of the North-West branch of the British Science Association has done more than most to advance the general public’s understanding of science and to promote careers in science to students.  Her work was recognised when the NWSA was nominated for an award as part of Adult Learners’ Week organised by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (NIACE).  Yesterday evening, a team member of Everything Dinosaur was asked to present a Certificate of Achievement to Lorelly in recognition of her hard work.
