Science and Religion Book Published

This is available now. Science and Religion in the Classroom► Plenty of thoughtful writing including my own modest, practical, chapter based on parts of workshops I have been running around Europe

I have been working with Reading University and Christ Church Canterbury on educational research linked to the LASAR► project for which I am on the academic advisory board. Our work was presented at the BERA conference in 2016.

Blue Action

My research activities for the last two years have included a role in the Blue Action project with the University of Lapland. The aim of the project is to "provide fundamental and empirically-grounded, executable science that quantifies and explains the role of a changing Arctic in increasing predictive capability of weather and climate of the Northern Hemisphere."

Cheltenham Science Festival 2018

I did two shows at Cheltenham this year. This is my 12th consecutive year on the programme at the science festival in Cheltenham. I have also presented at the Jazz and Music festivals. I also developed, for Cheltenham, the first citizen science project at a public festival to lead to an academic publication anywhere in Europe. It is great to be back working with The Flying Kandinskys► in particular.

British Council

Science in Schools: Four very successful tours of mainland France and one vist to French Guiana with Supermarket Scientist► for primary schools, going back to do it again and a third time to do the Brain Game► with secondary schools after a meeting with representatives of the British Council and the French Education Ministry in Paris.

SchoolLab: I have been working with the British Council in France to launch SchoolLab; a schools project modelled on FameLab. More news on this soon!
