Tales of maths and science

A career in science and communication


Johnny Ball has spent much of his career communicating ideas in science and maths. From penning and presenting award-winning television series’ to writing science based educational musicals. In his current role as an Ambassador for British Engineering, he lectures widely to schools and colleges, urging career paths towards maths, science, engineering and technology.

In his talk, Johnny will discuss tales of heroic scientific characters he has featured over the years and how he makes their achievements still relevant to present day students and situations. He’ll then round off with some personal views of how we might ensure we send the right messages to encourage ever more bright young minds towards careers in maths and science.
