Zoë Gamble



Zoë Gamble is a Science Communicator for science made simple, and founder of Cardiff-based science improvisational comedy troupe ‘The Simpletons’.   Zoë has performed science shows all over the UK and abroad, to over 20,000 people. She can speak on a vast range of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects, making the topic engaging and entertaining whatever the audience’s age or knowledge level.

Zoë has a BSc. in Functional Genomics and Stem Cell Science, MSc. in Science, Media and Communication, and has been awarded the LAMDA gold medal for public speaking. She is a regular contributor to BBC Radio Wales.

Her favourite part about science communication is the opportunity to share her passion with the audience.  Whether two hundred 14-year-olds are hanging off her every word as she explains advances in 3D printing, or when the room is filled with shrieks of delight when she turns a plastic bag into a hot air balloon for a class of 5-year-olds, Zoë loves to pass on her enthusiasm for science.



Zoë has presented seven short videos on the human body for the BBC Bitesize Website, aimed at at a KS2 audience. You can find all the videos here.


Zoë presented at Science Alive Festival 2016 in Hong Kong. Watch her on the Hong Kong news here:
