January 2020: Royal Astronomical Society, Sir Patrick Moore medal for Education for work in promoting Geophysics and Astronomy.
Citation: Dr Caroline Neuberg has been a tireless and enthusiastic promoter of geophysics and astronomy to both hundreds of school children and other physics teachers over the last ten years. She leads a programme of installing seismometers in schools alongside associated training workshops for students and teachers and she initiated a similar programme and installed 10 seismometers in Maori schools, New Zealand.
In astrophysics, Caroline leads a project which attracts students from Leeds primary and secondary schools, using microscopes to look at Moon rocks. She clearly inspires students and teachers alike both in this country and overseas and is a very worthy winner of the Patrick Moore Medal
