I am a passionate chartered chemist with the royal society of chemistry and work for a fuel and water company in the UK. In my spare time, I run my own science communication company which provides workshops at various events around the country. Due to the popularity of my stuff, I am now working with local schools and my local county council to bring these workshops (via chemistry kits) into the educational scene. With a presence at many festivals next year, careers evenings and school visits, the use of the IYC logo is essential. Please visit the website above or contact my email/phone for more information.

I also have been working on providing a value to work experience students which I am in charge of at my day time job. This has recently won an education award, and the amount of students passing through has increased, as well as word of the placements around the West/East Sussex and Surrey area. The use of IYC literature would also be of value too. Marbling Madness will be attending at least 5 festivals, 3 schools and a skills fair during the IYC period, plus what ever else turns up before then!
