I am a retired teacher who wrote 7 photocopiable books for Teachers and one book for children Union Jack Colouring Book. The 7books covered Geography, History (Medieval/ Tudor/ Stuart), Travel and Transport, Myself and Events (this included diaries), Race Against Time Stories (SATS based), Church Dates for Children plus Nature and Seasons (including Sport). These 7 books have been mainly broken into a number of segments. Challenging the Physical Elements, my Geography book, is complete.

Clifford Victor Johnson (1968) is an English theoretical physicist and professor at the University of Southern California department of Physics and Astronomy. He is listed in the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education as the most highly cited Black professor of mathematics or a related field at an American University. In 2005 he was awarded the Institute of physics Medal and prize for his work on string theory and quantum gravity. He is particularly keen to get children of colour to realise that in science they can be equally successful rather than just in sports or music. You too can be a scientist. Professor Frank Chinegwundoh is the first ‘Black British’ urological surgeon. He is very much at the forefront of getting men, especially black men, to have their prostate checked- they have have a 3 fold excess risk compared to white men. In 2011, with Ricki Gervais, he took part in a Sky TV comedy to raise awareness of prostate cancer. He is a recognised expert in the field of prostate cancer.

She is currently professor of mathematics at John Hopkins University in the US Margaret Ebunoluwa Aderin-Pocock (b, 1968) is a space scientist and educator. Her research investigated the development of an ultra thin film measurement. She is a pioneering figure in communicating science to school children. She co-hosts The Sky at Night (2014-present) with Chris Lintott. She has written many books and won many awards ( see lists). Dr. Mark Richards is an atmospheric physicist and lecturer at Imperial College London. He is currently Head of Physics Outreach and wants to share his experiences with young people to help them prepare for further study and eventually find a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering Mathematics). Nira Chamberlain (b. 1969) is a Mathematician based in Birmingham UK. He is a principle Consultant as SNC-Lavin and is the President of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. He is the first mathematician to feature in Who’s Who since 1849. He has worked all over the world helping industrial partners.
