These awards recognised the unsung heroes of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The winners received their awards on Anniversary Day 2010.
The Royal Society Hauksbee Awards were made in 2010 to recognise and reward excellence in supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics in the UK and to mark the Society’s 350th anniversary.
The awards were named after Francis Hauksbee FRS, who was Isaac Newton's laboratory assistant at the Royal Society. During his time as President, Newton appointed Hauksbee as curator and instrument maker, and Hauksbee later became a Fellow in his own right in 1705.
