Valerie meets Walsall’s Louisa Cockbill at SET for Britain event in Parliament

On Monday 9 March 2015 Valerie attended the Science, Engineering & Technology (SET) for Britain event in Parliament.

Valerie said:

“I was delighted to welcome Louisa Cockbill to Parliament. Louisa grew up in Walsall South attending Chuckery Primary School, Aldridge Secondary School and Queen Mary’s Grammar School for Sixth Form. Laura is now a PhD student at Bristol University.”

“Louisa is studying the invasion of brain tumours and produced the infographic below. Louisa will continue with her research into this important subject.”

“SET for Britain is an annual competition and exhibition in Parliament. There were five categories: Biological and Biomedical Science, Chemistry, Engineering, Mathematics and Physics. The awards are judged on the basis of the very best research work and results by an early-stage or early-career researcher together with their ability to communicate their work to a lay audience.”
