Science Writer and Presenter

Sarah Bearchell

One day I might be making clouds from dry ice for thousands of children and the next day I could be sitting at my laptop, writing about a building which can fry eggs (no, honestly! Check out 20 Fenchurch Street in London). I work for lots of different companies but one of my favourites is The Curiosity Box! I love to imagine the delight on children’s faces as they open the box and discover what they will be investigating this time.

Being a freelance science writer and presenter means my job is never boring (except when the tax return is due!). I get to meet lots of interesting people in schools and at science festivals; lots of whom ask the most random science questions! Despite working for myself, I’m also part of a big community of like-minded people, who share their ideas and enthusiasm, so there is always someone to brainstorm with.
