Myles Power

Hi, my name is Myles Power, I am originally from Middlesbrough in the north east of England. I have been called a geek by nearly every one I have ever met, including my mother! It probably has something to do with my favourite TV show being Star Trek Enterprise, playing several instruments (but most skilled on the saxophone), and owning multiple sonic screwdrivers. I have always had an interest in science from a young age, I was able to continue this interest by studying Chemistry at University. Whilst at university, I specialised in organic synthesis and also gained an appreciation of Biological Chemistry. I want to share my love of science online by producing home experiment videos in the hope of encouraging the next generation of scientist to try them for themselves.
