Skype an astronomer

I chat to around 10,000 schoolchildren every year from Year 1 right through to Year 13, and it never ceases to encourage me how interested they are in outer space and the wider universe.

In search of the answers, teachers often take their pupils to science centres or invite guest speakers into school.┬áBut, sometimes, those options aren’t always possible. So I offer a simple alternative: remote Q&A sessions with school groups via Skype.

With almost a decades’s worth of experience, I can answer the most difficult of questions in a fun jargon-free way that they can understand.
