Dr. Bunhead (aka Tom Pringle) has worked professionally as a freelance
science communicator since 1996, developing and broadening both public
understanding and enthusiasm for science, bringing it out of laboratories
and into classrooms, theatres and TV. He has written and presented
material for BBC, ITV, Discovery, Disney, New Zealand TV and a few
more not well enough known to impress anyone.
He writes and presents educational material, for primary through
to post-grad level, for many organisations such as The British Council,
Royal Institution, BBC and BP.
The Bun has delivered over 1,000 shows at more than 400 venues
worldwide (UK, Brazil, New Zealand, Australia, America), with sell
out performances at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, science festivals,
arts festivals, theatres, arts centres, pubs... (you name it).
For older audiences he provides seminars in creative approaches
to communicating complex ideas (not just science) in addition to
In-Service training for teachers. He also does adults-only shows,
like "The Filthiest Show on Earth" and "The Chemistry
of Love & Lust" (extracts of which were shown on Discovery
Channel's 'The Sex Files').
When he's not working too hard, he goes rock-climbing and cycling
(but not at the same time). He likes milk but no sugar, and a couple
of biscuits would be nice (preferably chocolate).
