Robin James became a primary teacher at 30 after working as a wine merchant, among several other things. Robin was drawn to the nurturing, creative, curious nature of the classroom and enjoys finding projects that make learning that little bit more exciting. One of these, ‘Racing Sand Yachts’, was his second to be shortlisted for the Rolls-Royce Science Prize and led to him becoming a PSTT Fellow in 2013.

Robin has since developed a technique called ‘Stop! Watch!’ that uses short, self-made films of children’s practical work as an assessment tool and he was able to research the effectiveness of this for a Masters. A visit to CERN inspired another idea: the Hula-hoop Hundreds-and-thousands Hadron Collider (HHHC), which introduces young children to particle physics.
