Neil wins a Prize

Neil Barnes - the mysterious cult hero of Periodic Videos - has picked up an award for his outreach activities.


It was the Papin Prize for Outreach, awarded at the 2015 Higher Education Technicians' Summit.

Neil is a senior technician at the University of Nottingham's School of Chemistry and has been a star of the Periodic Table of Videos since day one.

Neil is a genius behind the scenes helping real chemistry get done every day... But it is great to see him honoured for his "extra work" bringing chemistry to the wider world.
