Science presenter and geek songstress Helen Arney appears on TV, Radio and in theatres across the world with her unique mix of stand-up, songs and science.
You might have seen her explaining physics while riding a rollercoaster for BBC Coast, singing the periodic table on Channel 4, smashing a wine glass with the power of her voice live on Blue Peter or hosting Outrageous Acts Of Science on Discovery Channel.
Helen Arney is also one third of science comedy phenomenon Festival of the Spoken Nerd, whose fire-filled Full Frontal Nerdity show is out now on DVD and download.
In case you missed it (you would only have had to blink a few times) here’s my *new* *updated* version of Tom Lehrer’s “Elements” as seen on Channel 4 News last night. I’m still waiting for the IUPAC to actually name elements 113, 115, 117 and 118 before I can truly finish the song, but let’s call this New Version 1.0 for now.
In other news, I helped the Royal Institution Christmas Lecture smash a glass on TV (yet again) but have no fear if you missed it, you can see the lectures here with the glass-smash around 42 minutes, or watch my live stage version from “Full Frontal Nerdity” where I sing my little heart out here.
Also there’s an epic sale on at the Festival of the Spoken Nerd shop right now… everything is in multiples of pi pounds, from t-shirts to totes and tea towels, so you can pick up a bargain from just £3.14 if you are quick…
Finally, a childhood dream has been realised! I did a smashing bit of science live on Blue Peter last Thursday – click the image on the left to watch it happen.
For more updates on what I’m doing right now, take a look at my latest Newsletter here. There’s new videos from my piece about Dark Matter for BBC2 Coast, free songs to download, and a tonne of tour dates with our new “Just For Graphs” show all around the UK.
We’re about a quarter of the way through the tour now, and you’ll be gutted if you miss out on four types of fire, big spectacular musical numbers and an “electrifying” live experiment that involves the whole audience.
