The Smedias are over for another year, and we were thrilled to have the Science Foundation of Ireland as sponsors of the SFI Science Writer of the Year award at this years Smedias.
Commissioned in 1998, The SFI strive to assist the development of areas such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics by funding studies and research programmes. Their aim is to develop this country into one of the global leaders of scientific development and research.
They also support science writing and the reportage of breaking news in the scientific world. The SFI teamed up with the Smedias to find the best Science education writer in the country. This year, that accolade went to Shauna Bowers from DCU.
We were delighted to have the SFI return as sponsors of the SFI Science Writer of the Year award at this years National Student Media awards.
