Triumphant Win for O-Teen at Science Snippets
A massive congratulations to Lower Sixth physicist O-Teen K who saw off tough competition to win the ‘Science Snippets’ science communication prize this week. Tasked with explaining his chosen topic of aerodynamics to his target audience of GCSE-level students, O-Teen deftly curated a presentation which was both informative and fun, leaning on examples such as the Magnus effect’s use in scoring the perfect penalty to the complex aerodynamics of F1 cars.
Competing against finalists from across the country including Tonbridge School and Eton College, O-Teen’s ability to both academically impress without bamboozling the audience and making what is a notoriously perplexing topic accessible definitely sets him apart as a superb communicator of science.
O-Teen received his first place prize from Sir Jim Smith of the Francis Crick institute.
