Unsung Heroes of Science

Who has history forgotten? Whose story has been left out of the textbooks? Whose work gets overlooked?

Hertford College’s video competition challenges teenagers to celebrate the stories of those unsung heroes of science who deserve wider recognition. Running since 2019, we now have a bank of almost 100 videos which tell stories spanning over 1,000 years of scientific history. You can watch them all, find out more about the winners from 2019 2020, and 2021 and – if you’re a teacher – integrate the unsung heroes into your lessons using our Teachers’ Resources. We’re delighted that Unsung Heroes of Science made the final shortlist for the Vice-Chancellor’s Diversity Awards in 2020.
