I passionately believe that science communication should be all about making things fun. We all remember falling asleep in our science classes at school as we entered the third month of deciding where Fat Billy would have to sit on a see-saw to balance Thin Milly. But this isn't what science is! Science has the most extraordinary ability to satisfy my curiosity in a way that no other subject can replicate. You want to know why your t-shirt is blue? Science has the answer. Why things grow? Yep, that's covered too. How light bulbs work? I think you catch my drift...
