Dr Eric Albone MBE awarded honour by the Japanese Ambassador

Mr Youmans, our Head of Chemistry, was invited to represent the school at a very exciting ceremony in London in June. Dr Eric Albone MBE, a long-time supporter of our school, was awarded the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Rays, by Ambassador Tsuruoka of Japan in recognition of the work done through the UK-Japan Young Scientists Workshops initiative. This scheme brings together both countries through the collaboration of young scientists (17-18 year old students) where they share in each other’s cultures as well as working on cutting edge projects in workshops at Universities in both the UK and in Japan. 


SMRT has been involved in this project for 5 years, with significant funding coming from the Bristol based charity Clifton Scientific Trust (CST). Eight students from St Mary Redcliffe & Temple School in Bristol will be going to the 2017 workshops in Cambridge University and to Kyoto University in Japan during Activities Week this July.
