Dr. Maggie Aderin-Pocock
Maggie also has a Science in Society fellowship from the Science and Technology Facilities Council which enables her to engage the public with the science work that she loves. The fellowship is held at University College London. Through this work, Maggie makes regular appearances on television and radio as a space and education expert and presenting science to a general audience.
To further share her love of science, Maggie has also set up her own company, Science Innovation Ltd., through which she conducts “Tours of the Universe” and other public engagement activities, showing school children and adults the wonders of space. To date she has given these talks to 150,000 people across the globe. She has just produced a film through her company called “Space in the UK”, which features Maggie on a simulated spaceship to Mars. This is being distributed free of charge through schools and science festivals across the country.
