Simon Stellmer honored for excellent teaching: Fulbright-Cottrell Award goes to the University of Bonn for the first time


An innovative idea for training students has earned Prof. Dr. Simon Stellmer, a physicist at the University of Bonn, this year's Fulbright-Cottrell Award, which is endowed with nearly 70,000 euros. The prize goes to the University of Bonn for the first time. The Fulbright-Cottrell Award recognizes researchers in physics, chemistry, and astronomy who combine excellent research and creative teaching in an outstanding manner. An interdisciplinary lab course experiment is being created at the University of Bonn that can be used in both physics and geodesy. Researchers use the method to measure earth rotations, among other things. The project started on July 1 and will be steadily developed over the coming years.
