Big Bang North West: Adventure Science! Huw James – ScottishPower Show Stage
Huw will be offering visitors the chance to see a specially adapted BBNW version of his Adventure Science show.
He’s so excited, he sent a special Big Bang North West message while diving in the Caribbean – take a look!
“Adventure Science is an interactive adventure show that explores the science and technology behind the Anturus Expeditions.
Together we will take a look at the key ideas you need to survive an adventure in the outdoors. From staying warm with smart new textiles created by engineers to keep you dry, to removing microorganisms from water to make it safe to drink by using current technology also used in hospitals.
In this performance we look at the sustainability advantages of eating bugs and the nutritional values for survival, and how to make sure you’re prepared for adventure! Field Scientists are some of the best adventurers, after this engaging science show perhaps you’ll want to be a science adventurer too!”
We do, we do! Don’t miss Huw on the ScottishPower Show Stage at The Big Bang North West. We’ll be sharing his show times soon…
Huw started in public engagement and communicating science straight out of University. After graduating with an Honours degree in Astronomy and Space Science, Huw set his sights on communicating science with the public. He spent a year at the UK’s oldest science centre, Techniquest, working his way up from presenter to organising the science centre’s outreach to travelling abroad working with partners on science exhibits.
He then moved on to Cardiff University and their spin out company ‘science made simple’. This is where Huw began to hone all his skills that he would develop further on in his career from public speaking, film making, show writing, communicating science and more.
Huw now runs the successful company ‘To the Blue’. It runs a range of projects from the ‘All Around You Roadshow’ for Robert Bosch GmbH to the 2012 Olympic endorsed ‘In the Zone’ feature tour for the Wellcome Trust.
Huw has performed talks and shows on 6 continents about science, adventure and more. He has had audiences of over 600,000 in his public speaking career and holds a distinction in public speaking from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.
His work with online channels such as HeadSqueeze and VideoJug have seen his videos viewed by over 1 million people. Huw has presented for YouTube for many years as well as for the small screen with shows like SportsLab doing amazingly well on channels like Kix TV. He regularly appears on the radio as science advisor too.
Huw’s mix of outdoor training, climbing and mountaineering place him in the perfect locations to grab those night time starry sky shots or day time extreme mountaineering shots. He is an experienced mountain leader and a trained climbing instructor.
