"..a live show where art and science hurtle towards each other and collide with all the energy of exploding stars, giving birth to something really rather beautiful"
science made simple leading the way
science made simple has been shortlisted for the prestigious 'Leadership in Social Enterprise' Award. Over 10 years ago, Wendy Sadler began talking to students about the science of music
She started working with others to help her bring science into schools - and science made simple was born! Now science made simple consists of thirteen staff members, with over 20 different shows and products. Thanks to Wendy's leadership, we hope to fulfil our mission of inspiring the next generation of scientists!
