Robin started teaching aged 30 becoming a fellow in 2013 after leading two projects shortlisted for Rolls-Royce Science Prizes. The second of these involved children from three other local primaries racing sand yachts on Exmouth’s beach and Robin continues to work in partnership with these schools. His interest in film as an assessment tool led to Stop Watch, a technique researched for his education MA. In 2019, Robin’s Hula-hoop Hundreds-and-thousands Hadron Collider idea for introducing young children to particle physics was exhibited at Science on Stage in Portugal. Robin has written articles for Primary Science. He enjoys camper-vanning and canoeing.
