Thu 27 April 2017, 19:00 – 20:15 BST
Enter the world of ‘Fun Science’ with Charlie McDonnell, super-popular video blogger, filmmaker, writer, musician and science lover and go on an awesome journey through the cosmos, from the origins of planet Earth to the particles that make up everything around us. Expect frequent digressions as Charlie is joined by fellow vlogger Sally Le Page to discuss his love for science and his latest book Fun Science. After starting to post YouTube videos in 2007, Charlie became the first video blogger in the UK to reach one million subscribers. You can watch him at charlieissocoollike.
In 2010 he released his first music album, ‘This Is Me’ and in 2013-14, Charlie made a series of four short films, funded directly by YouTube. He likes to think they got better as he made more of them, but check for yourselves!
Beyond his own YouTube channel, Charlie has worked on many online video projects, notably “Science of Attraction,” hosted by Derren Brown, and a series of video blogs from behind the scenes of Doctor Who for the BBC. He’s also worked with many brands to produce videos for his own channel, including Microsoft, Sony Pictures, Pixar, Disney, and Tommy Hilfiger. Read more about Charlie on his website charliemcdonnell.com.
Charlie will stay on for a book signing afterwards where Fun Science will be available to buy.
