Dr Lucy Rogers
Engineer, Inventor and Communicator
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
