The Bragg Medal and Prize was instituted by the Council of the Institute of Physics and The Physical Society in 1965. The first award was made in 1967. The medal is named after Sir Lawrence Bragg, who had an international reputation for the popularization and teaching of physics.
The award will be made annually to an individual or team for significant contributions to physics education. It is intended to make this award for leading and innovative contributions to the teaching of physics such that encouragement will be given to people active in developing new methods and approaches. The medal will be bronze and will be accompanied by a prize of £1000 and a certificate.
