Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

Kimberly Gilmour and Stuart Adams, Co-Chairs, said:

“We are delighted to have been awarded a Queens Award for Voluntary Service. This  achievement is not only in recognition of the work of science4u to inspire students to study science and showcase the many careers in healthcare science, but also the work and support of all the volunteers who provide the programme, the schools who attend, and our collaboration with the University of Westminster’s Outreach Team and their academic colleagues.”

Welcome to science4u.info

With COVID-19 closing schools, science4u liaised with teachers who said it would wonderful if science4u Schools Science Conference could run some online activities.

In conjunction with the The Royal College of Pathologists, science4u has created a virtual science fair that includes workshops, videos, quizzes, Q&A and other activities that students and schools can use now and in the future. 

In addition, our volunteers have been working across the NHS  to diagnose and care for COVID-19 patients. Among a variety of things, their work  has included developing and running of antigen and antibody tests (laboratory scientists), working with patients to help their breathing and monitor their hearts (respiratory and cardiac physiologists), stabilising and transporting patients (ambulance staff) as well as creating and making PPE and devices to help with breathing (biomedical engineers).

We celebrate all our wonderful science4u volunteers who are supporting patients and the NHS through COVID-19.
