In their first concert at the O2 in London last night (after touring around the world for months), the Spandau Ballet showed what great musicians they still are and how strong their fan base still is. With a career spanning over 30 years their music seemed more current than ever and their performance more confident and mature than in their early years. You could tell from their laughs and hugs with each other that they have more fun now than when they were younger.  All axes are buried now and they are living the dream of being a top rock band once more.

Go on, be ExpeRimental and get stuck into science!

Mar 03 2015

I have what I believe is the best job in the world, I spend my days as the Science Learning Manager at the Royal Institution (home of the famous CHRISTMAS LECTURES) coming up with ideas about how to get people excited about science. My goal is to make science accessible, enjoyable and meaningful for everyone, regardless of their background, location or previous experience with the subject.

I’m also a London mum of two girls, Viola aged 6 and Elodie aged 3, and I find it incredibly satisfying to help them explore their natural curiosity about the world around them and how it works. This makes me especially passionate about supporting parents to get stuck into science at home so that they too can enjoy the same experiences.
