Jodie Smith

Jodie Smith's brilliant science project

Today I met with Jodie Smith from Dover who is a materials scientist studying for a PhD at the University of Kent. Jodie did a great science project that was exhibited at the House of Commons.

Her project is about how to test glass to get the right strength. The testing is done by measuring neutron diffraction - a clever way to test the substance without altering it. It's very serious science that Jodie has been researching and I was deeply impressed with her project.

After visiting Megger last week, it underlines how we should be really proud of the scientific and engineering excellence we have in our community. A big congratulations to Jodie for her success!
