Mary, Charlotte and Sophie entered the 'Unsung Heroes of Science' competition, which focuses on those who history has forgotten, and those whose story has been left out of the textbooks. This year, Hertford College had more entries than ever before, and the video submitted by our girls was shortlisted in the top 24 videos from around the world!

Hertford College, University of Oxford, will be judging the videos over the next few weeks, and plan to announce the winners in an online celebration event in June.

Below is the girls' entry on Astrophysicist, Jocelyn Bell Burnell. We hope you enjoy!
