Dan arrived in the country, penniless and unable to speak English, via the maternity ward of Whipps Cross hospital, Waltham Forest, and has been London based ever since.
After repeatedly falling in and out of love with science across his education, Dan realised the importance of inspiring and engaging science education for young people. So, after gaining experience working in primary schools, particularly with children with additional learning needs, he cut his science communication teeth at the Science Museum in London and now fulfills multiple roles at the Royal Institution. Through these organisations, he hopes to inspire children to follow science paths, families to try science demos at home, teachers to engage their pupils with exciting demos and investigations, and help adults enjoy science as entertainment.
Dan's freelance work includes writing, building, and producing his own science demos and shows for children and families, training others in uses of humour, science communication, and presentation in general.
If you'd like to work with Dan, have him visit your school, club, or community centre, train your team, or create a bespoke event for you or your organisation, please get in touch. CONTACT DETAILS
