Lucy Rogers

I am Lucy and I play with robot dinosaurs! I started out as an engineer and spent a lot of my time working out how bubbles are formed in equipment used to fight petrochemical fires! Now I use my imagination, what I have learned and my practical skills to solve problems.

  • Some of the projects I work on include:
  • decorating my broken arm plastercast with LEDs.
  • You can tweet it so the lights change colour working out the probability of spacecraft getting hit by space junk
  • turning science into plain english so everyone can enjoy it
  • robot dinosaurs at a theme park (Blackgang Chine)
  • making gadgets and gizmos
  • I also tweet space and science stuff

Lucy is our Cosmic Blast Off box champion.
