Pyrotechnician and Science Content Developer at The Royal Institution, Fran Scott has become a well-known face on children’s television. Scientist by education and engineer at heart, Fran uses her knowledge to entertain and excite audiences with high impact demonstrations to demonstrate her scientific points.
Inspired by the lack of female scientist role models on children’s TV Fran set about to change all that. She worked behind the scenes for several years and made the move to in front of camera in 2012. She then has since presented eight series of CBBC, six series for BBC Learning and one for BBC Worldwide. Her shows have received recognitios including four BAFTA nominations, a JAPAN prize nomination and an RTS award. She is best known for her playful, and often fiery, demonstrations on Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom.
Now Fran’s made the move into adult-focused programming and is allowing her love of engineering to take centre stage. Recently she has fronted The Department of Complaints for More4, shown her analytical side as the engineering judge on Series 2 of Lego Masters for Channel4, and has been an expert contributor on Engineering Catastrophes for Discovery and How Hacks Work for Viasat Explore.
Fran also now runs her own stage productions company, Great Scott! Productions, writing and producing high octane STEM shows for clients such as Google, Siemens and National Grid. And her work at the Royal Institution sees her heading up the demonstration team for their world famous Christmas Lectures.
Fran also writes as a columnist for both The Week Junior and National Geographic Kids, as well as a being a contributor to the Huffington Post.
