About the Author
From mind-bending tricks on BBC 1's Britain's Brightest to delving into our scientific heritage in ITV1's I Never Knew That About Britain, Steve describes himself as a jack of all scientific trades and master of none. He is the maker of mathematical curios, creator of illusions and poster of quirky science experiments on YouTube which have gained 2
million hits. Steve has made guest appearances on The One Show, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, Sunday Brunch, Absolute Radio and BBC Radio 5 Live. He was also the Science Presenter on Blue Peter "back in the day" and hasn't stopped going on about it since.
As well as twice touring her science-infused comedy songs around the UK with Robin Ince, Prof. Brian Cox and Tim Minchin in Uncaged Monkeys, Helen has appeared on Stewart Lee's Alternative Comedy Experience, smashed a wine glass with her voice live on Blue Peter and serenaded Jon Snow on Channel 4 News. As the UK's premiere geek songstress she's performed everywhere from the Edinburgh Fringe to Google's head office in California.
