Dr Becky Parker is Head of Physics at the Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys in Canterbury. She is also Director of the Langton Star Centre and plays a key role in enhancing astronomy and science education for the school’s students, so many of whom go on to study Physics at university that one in every 200 Physics undergraduates in the UK are from Simon Langton.
Formerly Head of Education at the Institute of Physics and a senior lecturer in physics at the University of Kent, Becky has also served on numerous science committees and, last year, became an Academic Visitor at Imperial College London. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and has been awarded an MBE for her services to science. This film was made with her friend and former student Anna Starkey.
