An Honour, a Trip, and a Chair

Posted by Claire

In January, I had the privilege of travelling to Houston, Texas, as a guest of the American Institute of Physics (AIP). There -- at a national meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers -- I received the AIP's 2018 Science Communication award for my book, What a Waste! Where Does Garbage Go? (Annick Press).

The award, delightfully, includes a beautiful wooden chair with a plaque on the back to mark the occasion. It's now my official Office Chair, and much appreciated. (And no, for those were wondering. I didn't have to carry it home in my suitcase! The AIP kindly sent it by courier.)
