"Thanks you so much for a truly stunning talk today. Every feedback form states how inspirational you were, and your explanations were perfectly pitched.
Brilliant story telling, great engagement and rapport with the audience - I couldn't ask for more!"
Anna, Institute of Education 2015
"Hare is a brilliant communicator: The star of BBCTV's "Rough Science"; his uniquely imaginative website has hands-on demonstrations, talks and workshops which inspire enthusiasm for science in children worldwide"
Sir Harry Kroto, Nobel Prize for Chemistry
"Absolutely fantastic! Our kids were buzzing all the way back to Newbiggin. As I mentioned it's more than just Science, it's about role models and aspirations and this visit provided all three and more."
Rob, Newbiggin Middle School, Science Christmas Lectures, Durham

What people say about Jonathan's talks & workshops
"I had to write to express my appreciation of your commitment to bring Nobel Prize winning science to children's education … my little son Tommy, 5 years old, came home thrilled and truly inspired by the workshop and started making his own versions of the C60 molecule."
