Outreach Manager

In 2004 I set up Out of this World Learning as a vehicle for the presentations and workshops I develop. During this time I've worked with every type of school across the country. I've also been involved behind the scenes in several TV shows, including producing a rocket powered Sinclair C5 for Sky’s Braniac & building a human orrery for the BBC’s Stargazing LIVE.

I believe that good science communication is essential, and it’s not only because we need more of the next generation to become scientists and engineers. It’s because everyone has to make science-based choices every day. Whether it’s having an opinion on global warming or changing your brand of ‘scientifically proven’ shampoo, everyone is all called upon to make decisions that are affected by our knowledge of science.
