Going from a £1,750 Prince's Trust loan and "a box of stuff" to inspiring more than one million children to discover how awesome science can be has been quite a journey.
From winning investment on Dragons Den to winning a Queen's Award for Innovation the press have played a vital role in sharing our story in Forbes, ITV This Morning, Huffington Post, BBC, ITV & Telegraph and too many more (awesome!) places to mention.

What's The Story?
Sublime Science have inspired more than one million children to discover how awesome science can be but the starting point was a "little" less glamorous.
(Mad) Marc Wileman founded Sublime Science with a £1,750 Prince's Trust loan back in 2008, in the depths of a recession, 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 been named Young Director of the Year by the Institute of Directors and won a Great British Entrepreneur Award.
He's been labelled "a visionary" by Forbes and won a Queen's Award for Innovation but most important of all to have made science awesome for more than 1,000,000 children.
He's been a professional 'science communicator' (maker of slime and launcher of rockets!) across 4 continents for more than a decade.
His passion to make science awesome has lead him to take on the Dragons in the Den, share fun science experiments with millions on ITV This Morning and share his ideas as a TEDx speaker.
He's even been invited down to 10 Downing Street. He holds a First Class Masters Degree in Physics (Universities of Nottingham & Toronto).
Marc is honoured to have helped break a Guinness World Record with Richard Branson's 29 hour pitchathon and to have given away more than 100,000 free copies of 5 Star Amazon science experiment book Don't Eat Your Slime!
"Starting a business, particularly if you are young and don’t have any money and contacts, is unbelievably tough,” says Wileman, who worked as a science educator before becoming an entrepreneur. “You don’t want to sound like you’re moaning about stuff, but it’s unbelievably difficult. The first year I probably worked 15 hours a day, seven days a week and didn’t take a day off for 12 months.
But that hard work paid off. Today the business he started in 2008 brings in seven-figure revenue—and Wileman is gunning to hit a big goal: Making science “awesome” for 1 million children at the company’s parties”

"Why More Young People Should Set Up Their Own Business
Nothing in this world is ever easy. To achieve your goals and be successful you need drive, determination, support and a little bit of luck. Becoming self-employed is no exception. When I first had the idea of Sublime Science, which recently featured on BBC 2’s Dragons’ Den, I was extremely excited but also daunted by the task that I’d set myself. As is the case with so many other entrepreneurs I’ve met on my journey so far, once the idea got into my head – it was impossible to let it go"
