It’s a new team member…

Hello! I’m Michaela, the newest member of the team here at Gallomanor who will be working on the I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer projects. I grew up near Bath but have lived elsewhere for a while, only moving back here earlier this year. My background is in visual arts and I studied for my bachelor’s in Cardiff. During my degree I got involved with local galleries and organisations, and I realised that what Read more…

Sustaining Excellence in STEM engagement through to 2021

We’ve been awarded a Sustaining Excellence grant. The Wellcome Trust are providing us with £550,000 over the next five years to carry on growing I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer in the UK & Ireland and to help us make the project fully sustainable. What does it mean? It means that we have funding to run Biomedical themed Zones and some general zones through to 2021. It means we expand the number of zones we’ve Read more…

We’re hiring (part-time): Organised, numerate, a little bit bossy & attentive to detail.

We’re expanding and we need someone to help us keep all our ducks in a line. The job involves a mixture of bookkeeping, project and office management. You’d be helping the team run our international portfolio of online science engagement projects from our central Bath offices. We’ve a lot of clients and projects and need to keep tabs on what we’re delivering and how much time and money we’re spending on delivering them. It’s a part-time Read more…

I’m an Astronaut, Get me out of here

Later this year Tim Peake is due to travel to the International Space Station. It’s the first time the UK has sent someone into space. It’s pretty damn exciting. It’s a major opportunity for engaging people with STEM and space in general. At GM Towers we’ve often discussed how to make our I’m a Scientist Zones more topical to help teachers connect the themes to things happening in the real world outside the classroom. So Read more…

Capita Corporate Imagery

I think it is fair to say that Capita have had some issues with PR. Whether it is being called C(r)apita or like when a friend joined them recently it was widely talked about going to “the dark side“. You would have thought that they might try to be a bit warmer face-to-face. It seems not. Tonight I went to pick up my daughter from Guides. She’d been visiting the Foodbank on Church Street in Read more…

The 5th continent

Ever since we established I’m a Scientist here in the UK we looked to expand overseas. The phenomenal success we’ve had in the UK has however kept our attention here, with a few notable exceptions. Kristin Alford took the initiative in Australia after interrupting her family holiday to enjoy a pint with us and a few scientists in the Jeremy Bentham following one event. We managed to start up the Irish events with our existing Read more…

New Year, New Wrangler

Hello there! My name is Antony, and I am the newest member of the Gallomanor team. My slightly exotic surname belies my real origins in the city of Leeds, but I have been living in the South West for the last year and a bit. I have just completed my M.Sc. in Science Communication at UWE and I am now a Project Wrangler working on I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer. At the moment, Read more…

Help needed

UPDATE: We’ve found someone. He’s accepted and should be starting with us soon. He’ll introduce himself very soon. Do you want to help run the best science engagement project in the world? We’re looking for someone to join the Gallomanor team full-time at our lovely office in the centre of Bath. You’d be working on I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer primarily, but also providing general support. The job involves helping to recruit and Read more…

Only 4 years

3 years and 11 months ago I wrote this post advertising for an Project Executive to join the team. A certain Rosie Schultz answered the advert, and one telephone interview later she joined Gallomanor and the I’m a Scientist team on January 4th 2011. In those years we’ve seen a transformation in the company. We went from just the two of us in our Bradford on Avon offices to a stellar team of five working out Read more…
