About the Authors

We have both just graduated from the University of Leicester with an MPhys in Physics with Astrophysics. Carolyn Brinkworth is about to start a PhD in Astrophysics at the University of Southampton, while Claire Thomas is going on to do a PGCE in Secondary Science at the University of Leicester. We have both been heavily involved in public outreach work over the past four years, having run two National Science Week events and spent the past two Summers involved in Public Understanding work for the Department of Physics and Astromomy at Leicester. We have also helped to run a six-session science club at the Snibston Discovery Park in Leicester. On top of this, Carolyn has also worked for the Challenger Learning Centre as a part-time Flight Director and has spent a Summer working for the National Space Centre on their public outreach work.

We are both keen to get involved in any new science education projects. Please feel free to contact us by clicking below:
