Charity Registration No. 1110621

Story

science made simple is a science communication social enterprise. We travel around the UK, and occasionally the World, sharing our love of STEM and inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers.

The whole company was inspired by Rhys when he decided he would swim 30 miles in 3 months to raise money for CALM. This is following on from earlier this year when he took part in the Aspire Channel Swim where he swam 22 miles in 12 weeks.

Wendy, our director, suggested we join our forces together and get as many swimmers as we could and see how far we could swim. Between current employees, past employees, and partners of staff, we have 15 swimmers raring to go! Between us all, and our varied swimming abilities, we aim to swim a whopping 265 miles in 3 months! That's more than the length of Scotland!

10th September is Suicide Awareness Day, and the day we will be starting our challenge. Until the 10th December, Rhys, David, Leanne, Becky, Helen, Paul, Wendy, Becca, Rich, Ruth, Rosie, Zara, Rachel, Nat, and Dan will be swimming until we reach our goal.
