With a background in comedy as well degrees coming out if his ears in Physics, Steve has a trusted and celebrated reputation for providing expert knowledge and packaging complicated scientific ideas in an accessible way. Each week he takes a science phenomenon and explains it in an informative and entertaining way using incredible experiments.
His video Self Siphoning Beads has accumulated over 2.5 million views on YouTube.
