Eminent physicist comes to Hillcrest

Dr Vincent Smith, an Honorary Senior Research Fellow in the School of Physics at Bristol University, has conducted research in elementary particle physics, taking part in projects at CERN and Fermilab and serving as a member of the team that discovered the Higgs Boson. In 2004 he was awarded an MBE for services to physics.


Dr Smith received the Institute of Physics Phillips Award 2020 for his outstanding contributions to the Institute, and for other work promoting physics, including outreach to schools.


Today, he visited Hillcrest and read to the children in Yrs 1 and 2!


Here he is with the Wright Brothers class.
