Always frustrated by lack of clarity in books he read as a child,
Jack Challoner long felt the need to make the amazing things
that science and technology have achieved accessible to a wide
audience. After studying physics in London, he trained as a science
and math teacher. He then worked at London's Science Museum, in the
education department and in their flagship interactive gallery,
Launch Pad. Jack left the museum in 1991 to write science and
technology books, and to write and perform science shows in
museums, libraries, and schools. He's been doing all that ever
since, with nearly forty books to his name. He also works as a
consultant on other people's science books, and sometimes in
television, helping to develop new ideas or work up existing ones.
He is also a musician and singer, writing, producing and performing
music. He lives in Bristol, England.
