Hi .. this site exists primarily to illustrate projects in pre-university physics, geophysics and computing.

Part of my rational being that:-

  1. You are interested in training/consultancy in computational modelling or LaTeX.
     
  2. Any of my old chums, wiling away a boring day at work may decide to try looking me up.
     
  3. You are interested in promoting 'real science' (S.T.E.M) projects in schools/colleges.
     
  4. You are interested in building a leading in-house and outreach STEM programme.
     
  5. If anyone is seeking an experienced, enthusiastic and proactive Physics / Mathematics / Computing Teacher to A-level / IB in the UK (esp. the North East), New Zealand, Canada, Australia or France.
     

At a personal level I am committed to setting up a national class STEM programme in the sort of geophysics/space-science projects described here, either in-house or as an outreach programme. I would welcome the opportunity to do so as part of my day job in a school or college rather than at present pursuing this goal privately.

These projects are cheap, research-level and are being released open-source. I would be happy to offer help to any individual or educational establishment who would like a go.

Drop me a line if interested.
