See Science Director receives MBE

Cerian Angharad, from  See Science Ltd, has been awarded an MBE in the 2020 Queen’s New Year Honours List.
As well as heading the See Science team, Cerian currently works in several other related capacities. She is Teaching and Learning and Gender Balance Coach at the Institute of Physics and Conference Organiser for the Institute of Physics in Wales. She has been involved with the Association for Science Education (ASE) for many years and has represented Wales as a Field Officer since 2004. In this capacity she organises a wide range of events for science teachers in Wales.

Cerian established the See Science consultancy with Liz Terry in 2010, with the mission to inspire and motivate young people, teachers and the wider public across the whole of Wales to engage with science, technology engineering and mathematics.

Cerian explains:
“I started See Science because I wanted young people to experience opportunities that seemed to be missing from their education. I was concerned about the skills crisis facing the UK in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The sector suffers from significant under-representation of various groups, notably women and people from minority ethnic groups. Our mission is to inspire all young people by providing new skills and experiences. We are also keen to raise the profile of STEM industries and provide positive images of STEM in the workplace.”
