About The Doug Clarke Medal

The Doug Clarke Medal

In 2008, the RSWA Council resolved to honour the life of Doug Clarke by initiating ‘The Doug Clarke Education Advocacy Award Medal’ of the Society.

This award recognises the outstanding contribution to science education made by Doug Clarke from Murdoch University. Clarke performed hundreds of chemistry shows at schools and regularly appeared on television. He inspired thousands of school children in the wonders of science, and assisted undergraduates and postgraduates. The inaugural award was presented to Doug Clarke at the Annual General Meeting of the Society in 2008. Eligible recipients can be Primary or Secondary School Teachers or University Teaching Staff.
