Taking science to rich people
Its an obvious gap in the audience profile, right up there with pensioners who cant find a child to take them to a science centre and those elusive young adults. My chance came when word spread that I was doing science shows for kids in the local Scuola Elementaria. It reached a lady who was looking for something different to give her niece for her Birthday. She decided it should be me. No, I didn’t have to jump out of a cake but i did feel a little like something the cat brought in. Maybe its not going to be a major thread in my continuing work related active engagement portfolio but it may be an alternative to applying to grant schemes that have gone down the rabbit hole.
