Introducing Dr D

Hi! My name is Dr Vicki Dennison (Dr D).
I started out as a research scientist, having gained a PhD from The University of Sheffield in 2001.
I am a fully qualified science teacher (GTP secondary science Bishop Grosseteste University College, Lincoln) with experience of teaching at all levels from Primary to Higher Education.
I also publish on-line articles relating to science education, providing lesson plans and suggestions for fun activities to engage children of all ages with science, and have published a series of poems to raise the profile of literature within science teaching (and possibly vice versa!).
I have recently had the pleasure of working with the BBC as a science busker on the UK tour of their flagship science show ‘Bang Goes the Theory‘, demonstrating a variety of experiments and scientific wonders to members of the public.
I am committed to promoting the safeguarding and well-being of young people, and have CRB enhanced disclosure, and certification in awareness of safeguarding and child protection from both Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire County Councils. I am also covered by Public Liability Insurance.
