What is your favourite science fact?

It takes 8 minutes and 19 seconds for light to travel from the Sun to the Earth. Light travels 300,000km per second. There is around 150 million kilometres between us and the Sun, so this equals around 8 minutes, 19 seconds

What is a fun fact about yourself?

As a teenager I was very influenced by music which led me to pursue a hobby as an MC (rapper) in which I was moderately successful and performed in several big stages, venues and have produced music tracks.

Which Centre of the Cell show is your favourite and why?

My favourite show is the ‘Snot, Sick and Scabs’ show as I enjoyed the fun element and young pupil’s reactions to seeing Centre of the Cell’s special pre-prepared snot.
