Check out this interview with Wendy Sadler MBE to find out what inspires and drives her.

How time flies!

What has Science Made Simple been doing for the past 21 years?

Rather a lot it seems… beginning back in the early 2000s, our founding Director Wendy Sadler started Science Made Simple with just one show – Music to Your Ears. The show fitted into the boot of her beat-up old Hyundai and toured schools in south Wales.

Wendy’s passion for physics and music – truly understanding the world around her and a deep belief that everybody should experience the intrigue and excitement of STEM subjects – set Wendy and SMS off on an excellent footing. Since those early days, SMS has gone from strength to strength.

Find out more about our story over the years, the experienced and passionate professionals that make up our team, and all the incredible things we provide:

  • Inspiring and engaging shows & workshops
  • Training to help researchers to get their message across to non-scientific audiences.
  • Consultancy to help with your specific science communication needs.
  • Resources to support many of the ground-breaking funded projects and STEM activities we do.

Learning about the way the world works has so much to offer all of us – it’s not just the delight of curiosity satisfied, or the fun of finding things out – science changes our perspective on the world and provides the critical framework that citizens need to make everyday decisions. Science Made Simple does a great job of sharing this message.
