Tim James - Science
Tim is the science teacher we all wish we’d had, with his strong and contemporary voice, sharp wit and a talent for making science surprising and fun. He is also a YouTuber, a public lecturer (courtesy of the Institute of Physics) and an inventor — having discovered a chemical that converts wood into a liquid biofuel.
Raised by missionaries in Nigeria, Tim fell in love with science at the age of 15, when he ran science revision sessions for his classmates. After completing his degree, he turned down several PhD opportunities, preferring instead to go straight into the classroom and teach.
Tim's new look at the now completed periodic table will be published by Constable & Robinson, Little, Brown in July 2018.
