Congratulations to Matthew Gover (4th Year, Bachelors of Science/Education (Secondary)) who was awarded 'Global Winner' for The Global Undergraduate Award 2022- Education. Matt's research ‘Investigating the Impact of Brief Psychological Interventions on Teaching Growth Mindset and Cultivating Growth Cultures in High School Science Classrooms’ was chosen as the highest quality submission with an Education focus. This year, there were over 2800 entries to the Global Undergraduate Awards, across all disciplines achieving a distinction (6) or high distinction (7) within undergraduate coursework.

Matt completed his research across a 6-week teaching placement as part of his dual degree. Since completing this placement, he has been employed as a math teacher at the same school. Matthew strives to create inclusive and safe classroom cultures within STEM, where all learners can engage and feel comfortable making mistakes.

Beyond the curriculum, Matt finds joy in encouraging students to become inquisitive and develop skills required to learn.

Matt is being flown to Dublin for the 2022 Global Undergraduate Summit in November 2022, where he will present his research.
