The official launch date of Zany Circus: Pythagoras Rules is July 22, 2018, so keep your eyes open for upcoming details about our book launch, and also for seeing purposes. Not to be confused with seeing porpoises, although that's cool, too.
Peel Bright Minds are a wonderful organisation. They hold regular Science Cafés (which are very interesting!), and have organised great events like the Innovators Tea Party, a Q&A evening with The Naked Scientist, and lots more.
