Hello I'm Adam Hart-Davis.


My Events and Talks.

 

I give lots of public talks and lectures, please look at my Events page to find out if I am appearing somewhere near you. My next public lecture is at Brooklands Museum, at Weybridge in Surrey on Sunday 11 January 2015.

 

Why not watch some of my mini-videos and podcasts?

 

 

What have I been doing recently?

I am highly Honoured to have been awarded the ASME's (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) prestigious Ralph Coats Roe Medal which  recognizes outstanding contributions toward a better public understanding and appreciation of the engineerís worth to contemporary society. I was presented with the award at the ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition in Montreal in November.

 

About me.

 

I am a freelance writer and photographer, I have written many books about Science and History. I do some broadcasting on radio and television. I like working from home, often with a cat helping on my desk. When I have to travel I like to do it by bike and train.

The Science Museum

In March 2011, I opened a new Exhibition at The Science Museum entitled "James Watt and our World". This brilliant exhibit features Watt's original workshop, completely reassembled and moved to the Science Museum in London. Watch a video about it on YouTube.

Why I support the Historic Royal Palaces:  

Prince Albert was a champion of Victorian innovation and industry - and apparently very fond of gadgets! In this video I championed the campaign to transform Kensington Palace by 2012. I tell you a bit more about my love of the Victorians - and explain why we should all play a part in the palace's future.
