Greg Foot, leading science communicator, tells his story of how a UK science degree led him to write and present both live and recorded science shows to huge audiences on stages and screens around the world and get more than 5 million hits on his YouTube videos.
Greg Foot is recognised as one of the leading science communicators in the UK. In the name of science, he has been frozen, shot and buried alive, built a jet-powered go-kart and unleashed giant flamethrowers on stage.
Greg joined the Smart Talk series to tell his story of how UK science degrees at the University of Cambridge and Imperial College London led him to write and present live science shows to huge audiences on stages around the world, get more than 5 million hits on his YouTube films, and host multiple TV series for the BBC, including his role as ‘Resident Science Guy’ on Blue Peter, the longest-running children's TV show in the world.
With fire, mess and awesome clips from his TV shows, Greg's interactive presentation left students in Shenyang, Tianjin and Jinan inspired to find their passion and be more curious about the world.
