Dave was voted the winner of the Quantum Zone in June 2013. If you’d like the chance to win funding for your own public engagement work, apply for the next I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here: imascientist.org.uk/scientist-apply
I spent all of my prize money on video equipment. My original plan was to make a series of science communication videos, but unfortunately I came up against some obstacles and wasn’t able to make them happen.
So the equipment was used to film live public shows I put on, including a show at the NSEW Science in the Park event in March 2014. These videos have been distributed online. You can see the finale of one of them below.
Since winning I’m a Scientist, I worked as a Physics Outreach Officer at Royal Holloway University for two years, and even managed to get some of my academics to sign up for the event!
