THE STEAM-SCHOOL

Calum is a fantastic speaker. I booked Calum to talk about his recent projects and the future of space exploration for a live broadcast with an audience of 10-14 year olds across the U.K. Calum did an excellent job of explaining complex concepts in an accessible way for this young audience. As an added bonus, he also talked eloquently about pursuing your dreams - he was truly inspirational role model for all the students watching the broadcast.
