Making sweets and slime as science experiments from the Beaches of Sydney right through to the Australian Bush (in a pickup truck no less!) was the 'slightly' unusual inspiration for Sublime Science!
After 'Mad Marc' had been a Professional Science Communicator (maker of slime & launcher of rockets!) across the UK, Canada and Australia & been a 'real' teacher in a school in Nottingham... inspiration struck. Why not pick out all the best, most fun, most exciting science experiments learnt over the years, all over the world, and put them all together?...Sublime Science was born!
"To make science awesome for one million children!"
'Mad' Marc (Marc Wileman on more sensible occasions!) founded Sublime Science with the sole intention of showing children how much fun science can be. He founded Sublime Science with a £1,750 Prince's Trust loan back in 2008, aged just 22.
Marc's best known as that guy that fired smoke rings at the Dragons on Dragons' Den wearing a slime covered lab coat but went on to secure Dragon investment.
Marc is utterly humbled to have won a Great British Entrepreneur Award, been labelled "a visionary" by Forbes and won a Queen's Award for Enterprise but most important of all to have made science awesome for more than 500,000 children.
Marc's been a professional 'science communicator' (maker of slime and launcher of rockets!) across 4 continents for over 8 years.
He's even helped to break a Guinness World Record, firing smoke rings and bubbling potions with Richard Branson's 29 hour pitchathon!
He holds a First Class Masters Degree in Physics (Universities of Nottingham & Toronto) and is proud to have given away more than 100,000 free copies of 5 Star Amazon science experiment book Don't Eat Your Slime!
Is Sublime Science Real Science?
(Mad) Marc holds a First Class Masters Degree in Physics (Universities of Nottingham & Toronto) and has been a Professional 'Sublime Scientist' across a good fraction of the globe!
Despite the qualifications Sublime Science is NOT all about equations and maths!
It’s about children having real fun doing science, being inspired and entertained (and sneaking in the learning when they’re having too much fun to notice!)
Well, those early parties & events do seem a distant memory but they must have gone well as almost 8 years later Sublime Science is now an Award-Winning national company, backed by a couple of Dragons!
I'm proud to say that We won the Netmums Kids Party Award as voted for by Netmums (UK's biggest parenting website)!
We are a proud to be an independent organisation that have worked with the British Science Association and have even received a congratulatory letter from No. 10 Downing Street!
"The Prime Minister... wishes you further success in the future as you continue to inspire more young people to take an interest in science” - No. 10 Downing Street
Even The Dragons Love Sublime Science...
The Dragons may not have liked having smoke rings fired at them in the Den but they did love making their slime and most importantly they loved Sublime Science!
4 of the Dragons made offers and Nick Jenkins and Sarah Willingham invested in Sublime Science and are now part of the team, helping to make science awesome for even more children.
World Record Breaking in Richard Branson's Pitchathon...
Sublime Science were honoured to fire smoke rings and create bubbling potions to break a Guinness World Record with Richard Branson's 29 hour Pitchathon. It was an incredible to have making science awesome recognised by a global icon and one of my entrepreneurial heroes:
"Congratulations. You’re on the shortlist! The British public think your business is great - and so do we!"- Shortlisted in Richard Branson's Pitch to Rich Competition
Royal Recognition - we're humbled that Her Majesty the Queen honoured us with the Queen's Award for Innovation - so you know you'll get 'something different' that children always crave!
What Do Sublime Science Do?
Our Sublime Science Parties are a real hit. They have that 'Something Different' that children always crave but we’ll save you the sales pitch - Instead, see why more than 10,000 parents (and counting!) have been so thrilled with their unforgettable experience!
Do We Do Anything Else?
Absolutely! We've produced Sublime Science stage shows for the National Science Museum, hosted the Top Trumps National Final and designed an awesome museum tour for the prestigious Museum of Childhood, in London.
We’ve entertained thousands of children at the Girl Guiding Centenary Celebration (at the beautiful Belvior Castle!) and even ran a Sublime Science Lab in a Mercedes showroom (alongside some incredible cars!). From Arsenal Football Club to the Discovery Channel we love to help out!
The book! - 'Don't Eat Your Slime'
It's the book that I wish had been written when I was a kid - It's packed full of awesome experiments for curious kids - that you can do, at home, with stuff you've already got!
Absolutely! - The Prince's Trust helped me to found Sublime Science when I was 22 and I'm passionate about supporting young people to start their own businesses and follow their dreams. Here's a picture of me speaking at the Prince's Trust Celebrate Success event.
Play is just so important and East African Playgrounds make play possible in Uganda by building playgrounds. I serve on the board of trustees and am honoured to support such an awesome cause.
