I am pleased to report that Peter Pockley, a long standing member of ASC,
today has been awarded the Australian Academy of Science Academy Medal for
2010. 

 

The Academy announced his award was for 'outstanding contributions to
science by means other than the conduct of scientific research', where his
efforts 'significantly advanced the cause of science and technology in
Australia'. This medal is normally awarded no more than once in three years.

Peter has been a pioneer and leader of science communication in various
media over many years. It is wonderful news that he has been recognised in
this way for his many contributions to engaging audiences with science.
