Listed in The Progress 1000 London’s most influential people, Fran Scott is the Science Content Developer at the Royal Institution as well as being the only female science presenter on CBBC.
A scientist by training and an engineer at heart, Fran uses her knowledge to entertain and excite audiences of stage and screen. She is best known for her playful (and often fiery) demonstrations on the CBBC show Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom.
Struck by the lack of female scientist role models on children's TV, Fran set about changing that. After working behind-the-scenes for many years on hit programmes such as Richard Hammond's Blast Lab, Bang Goes the Theory and Horizon, Fran then made the move to in-front of camera.
She has since presented eight series for CBBC, six series for BBC Learning Zone, and one for BBC Worldwide. For Fran, science and entertainment is at the heart of what she does, and this seems to have struck a chord with those wanting informative and yet engaging factual programmes, with her shows becoming successes across the globe and receiving numerous recognitions including four BAFTA nominations, a JAPAN prize nomination and a RTS award.
Now, as Fran (and her audience) are ageing, she's moving into more adult-focused programming, with More 4's Department of Complaints and the new series of Lego Masters for Channel 4, which is due to air this Autumn.
With her own production company, Great Scott! Productions, she writes and produces high-octane shows for clients such as Google for Education, Mishkat Science Centre, Siemens and National Grid. As the Science Content Producer at the Royal Institution, Fran also heads up the demonstration team in their world famous Christmas lectures.
Balancing entertainment with education, Fran manages to inject her demonstrations with narrative and humour to make them as enjoyable as they are informative, leading her to present with many well-known names including Richard Hammond, Prof. Robert Winston, Prof. Brian Cox, and of course, Dick and Dom!
Finally, Fran also writes science content for print, as columnist for both National Geographic Kids and The Week Junior, as well as contributing to Huffington Post.
