Interesting Resources and Places

When researching for my May's Moon stories, I discovered an amazing wealth of easily accessible science resources. Here are a few of my favourites.

I've delivered these cross-curricular workshops to schools, libraries, bookshops and at festivals. I’ve worked with primary schools on the Tim Peake Principia Mission project, with a local Space Academy and like to meet astronauts whenever possible.

KS2 Science and Literacy Workshops

Schools, libraries, bookshops and festivals

The May’s Moon trilogy follows 13-year-old Michael May in his quest to become the first child astronaut. It's a story about following dreams and what happens when those dreams hurtle towards reality.

Although fiction, the more I researched about our journeys into space, the more fascinated I became in space exploration. That’s why these stories include a substantial amount of space and science fact.

This led to me developing KS2 workshops, which combine science and space education with my own writing process.
