Director of the Brighton Science Festival
The true story of the nutty Universe, crazy planet Earth, chaotic evolution and unspeakable You! January 8 - March 19 "Are we nearly there yet?" is what children say at the end of a long journey. We have been on a very long journey - 14 billion years - and there have been many adventures. We'll hear the best of them in 11 Zoom presentations, each Saturday between January 8 and March 19. Richard tells the story, chapter by chapter, with a full display of drawings, paintings and visuals, in just ten minutes. Then there will be games chats and experiments, based around the week's main theme and the questions that arise. The full story (11 chapters) is all about you - your appearance as a hydrogen atom in the Big Bang, and your adventures through exploding stars, under-water volcanoes, evolution, bacteria, worms, dinosaurs, apes, humans, parents, neighbours, wars, floods, famines and earthquakes until the marvel that is YOU emerged just a few years ago.

About your Mentor
Science is amazing, though dealing with the lingo is frustrating - a constant barrier between us and the amazement waiting out there for us. My mission is to share the excitement, but simplify the language so we can all do it. I've written 20 books about science, mostly for 7-11 year-olds. Over the past 15 years I have continued to encourage scientific thinking via the Brighton Science Festival, and the Pocket Science Funfair. There's plenty to do: we need to understand a lot of things, from the huge to the tiny (think climate change and viruses). Let's keep on trying.
