We’re delighted to announce that Helen Czerski has accepted our invitation to become the new patron of ‘science made simple’. Helen is a physicist, oceanographer and broadcaster with a passion for science, sport, books, creativity, hot chocolate and investigating the interesting things in life. She’s an expert on bubbles and acoustics too, so she’s definitely a kindred spirit to the mission of our team!

Helen has presented a number of brilliant science programmes on BBC4 and Radio 4 and is the author of the highly acclaimed book; “Storm in a Teacup: the physics of everyday life

Helen said; ““I’m delighted to be the new Patron of science made simple because learning about the way the world works has so much to offer all of us – it’s not just the delight of curiosity satisfied, or the fun of finding things out – science changes our perspective on the world, and provides the critical framework that citizens need to make everyday decisions.  Science Made Simple do a great job of sharing this message.”

Helen has also made us a video sharing her tips for how to make a good science video to help the entrants of our 60 second video competition.


We’re all looking forward to working with Helen in the years to come. You can find out more about all the things she’s done here.
