Science Made Simple
Science Made Simple (School of Physics and Astronomy Cardiff University)
Science Made Simple has a passion for all things science. We aim to share our enthusiasm by offering inspirational and educational experiences that are tailor-made for schools, festivals, family and adult audiences.
Our mission is to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers, to engage the wider public with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) as part of popular culture, and to help build bridges between researchers and the public.
We do this by training professional science communicators for high quality science shows, through a variety of formats. These include live presentations, demonstrations and street theatre. We also develop educational materials and create accessible science media for a public audience.
Science. Made simple.
