Congratulations Zahra Pirvali, University Senior College Physics Teacher who was today selected at the recipient of the 2017 EXCELLENCE IN PHYSICS TEACHING AWARD by the Australian Institute of Physics (AIP).

The Chair of the SA Branch of the AIP, Dr. Andrew D Mackinnon, stated  “Since 2015 we have put the nomination process into the hands of Physics students at the three SA Universities, Zahra is the only teacher to have been nominated across multiple years. Namely, 2015 (Sarah Watzdorf, who is presently in her final year of a B.Sc with a Physics major at University of Adelaide) and 2017 (Georgia Bolingbroke and Iris Chak, who are both first year B.Sc students at University of Adelaide on track to major in Physics).”

The formal presentation of the award will occur during Science week. A well deserved award Zahra.
