We are pleased to welcome former “Big Brother” contestant Jon Tickle, who presented seven series of the Sky One show “Brainiac,” at this year’s Big Bang South East. Jon is renowned for his segment “Tickle’s Teaser” on “Brainiac” – asking challenging scientific questions such as “Why is there no mouse-flavoured cat food?” and “Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?” He will be meeting students to discuss their projects in the National Science + Engineering Competition.
Sounds great! What do I do now?
