Fellowship for Honorary Physics lecturer
The Fellowships are presented for 'engaging and inspiring adults and young people with Science and Technology...' and 'promoting openness about Science and Society'.
Dr Isenberg's citation described him as 'one of the pioneers of the popularization of physics'. An active member of the BSA for many years, he has given hundreds of talks, enhanced with experimental demonstrations to audiences from primary school pupils to pensioners.
Dr Isenberg has also made numerous television appearances and is perhaps best known as the organiser of the British Physics Olympiad. Over 10,000 UK school students participate every year, out of which five are selected to take part in the International Physics Olympiad.
In 2008, Dr Isenberg was awarded an MBE for his contribution to physics. In 1994, he received the Institute of Physics' Bragg Medal and Prize for significant contributions to physics education and innovative contributions to the teaching of physics.
