Watson's Young Scientist to meet Nobel Laureates

Published on 9 October 2003 Categories: Senior School

During her Sixth Year at Watson's, Emily Payne won the chance to attend the European Union Contest for Young Scientists as a result of her entry into the BA CREST Science Fair in February 2003. Emily had spent the previous summer working on her Nuffield Bursary project.

At the EU Contest in September, Emily's project to develop a method of detecting severe and mild forms of compression wood in tree samples won her the Honorary Prize, giving here the opportunity to attend the Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar. This is particularly exciting, as during her visit to Stockholm Emily will attend the Nobel Prize ceremony and have the chance to meet the Nobel Laureates.
