One of our first jobs was to recruit some key team members and we are pleased to introduce Tamasin Greenough-Graham and Rebecca Brueton who will be our project coordinators.
Tamasin decided to leave nuclear astrophysics behind when she realised she was spending all her time talking to a computer. Since then she has run science outreach programmes, written educational resources and advised professional bodies on public engagement. The best bits have involved playing with carrot-cannons and lots and lots of cornflour! She’s mum to an 8 and 5 year old and spends her free time racing sailing dinghies and singing in York’s most eclectic female barbershop quintet.
Rebecca is Digital Media and Marketing professional and mother to two budding scientists, aged 8 and 4. She is interested in the changing nature of community in the internet age and how technology can help people come together to share knowledge and ideas and to create positive social change. She was one of the founding members of the parent-led online campaign group Let Toys Be Toys and lives near the South Downs in Eastbourne.
