Ripon Grammar girls honoured as scientists of the future

TWO Ripon Grammar School students have been honoured at an online ceremony to celebrate scientists of the future.
Amy Goodwin and Scarlett Rooke were among 57 young people from schools across Yorkshire recognised as outstanding students at the University of York and Ogden Trust sixth annual Physicist of the Year awards.
Amy, who lives near Stokesley and plans to study medicine, says she enjoys the maths in physics: “Those parts just make more sense to me.”
Scarlett, from outside York, who is aiming for a career in engineering, said, as well as maths, she enjoys atomic structure: “It gives an introduction to how scientists are trying new ways to generate energy, specifically the process of nuclear fusion present in the Sun, but not yet on the Earth.”
They are among the large number of girls at RGS who are bucking the national trend, with more than 70 per cent excelling in maths and sciences at A-level and more than half of the school’s upper sixth form female students going on to study STEM subjects at university last year.
Amy and Scarlett’s nominations were based on their hard work, contributions in class and progress over the past year.
Boarding student Amy,17, was praised for her dedication and commitment to her studies “That never falters, even when the concepts get more complex,” said physics teacher Robert Griggs.
Scarlett, 15, was commended for working extremely hard to consistently creating work which is of A-level standard by her teacher Mike Barker.
