In 2017 I presented Glasgow Science, a marketing campaign by Glasgow Science Centre which culminated in "Can you send a teacake to space?" which made national and international news, popular TV shows and websites including Have I Got News for You and in the Westminster parliament. This campaign won a national award at the Marketing Society Scotland Awards for getting people talking about space.
