The Science of Disney
Do you LOVE Disney? Here at science made simple, we started asking questions like 'How big would Dumbo's ears have to be for him to fly?' and 'How are all the kittens in the Aristocats different colours?'  We've set out to answer these questions and compiled them all together in this handy blog.
If you have any Disney science questions then get in touch.
Emma has been very busy with the Tim Peake Rocket Science Project over the last month as schools have started receiving rocket lettuce seeds from the ISS. Take a look at our space made simple page to see what space and astronomy workshops and 3D shows we could bring to you.
We are launching a new video series conducting interviews with researchers and people within a science-related profession. We hope to build up a bank of videos showcasing a huge variety of people talking passionately about their careers, and being positive role models for the scientific community. 
Here's professor Astronomer Robert Kennicutt who popped into the office to tell us about his research. You can see how excited we are to have him in the office (he's got a law named after him!) You can watch his video HERE.

'Little SMSer' Zach has visited our office again to perform a science trick that truly confuses Rhys.
