Hello and welcome to Simple Scimum!
My name’s Kate and I’m a science communicator and writer.
I created this blog to answer the questions my children ask about science, nature and the world around them.
My aim is to enthuse and enlighten young children and help them channel their innate curiosity to discover and understand how things work. Through Simple Scimum, I share some of the great science questions I’ve been asked and my attempts to answer them.
I have three science A-levels, a degree in biochemistry, a PhD in protein crystallography and a postgraduate certificate in science communication.
You can find me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter @SScimum and use the buttons below to share my blog with any children and grown-ups you know who want to know more about science stuff!
