Neil Antony Carrington
Founder and Director
Neil graduated from Kings College London in 1986 with a degree in Geology and Geography. He is the founder of Science Dome and Science Zone has a great passion for sharing the wonder of science to children. He brings a wealth of experience to the Science Zone and is an experienced rock and fossils collector. Following 6 years of holidays to the Isle of Wight and also being local to the Jurassic Coast, Neil had a vision to show the wonder of dinosaurs and rocks to schools with a Science Dome. Neil purchased his first Mobile Dome in 2005 to bring to schools to show computerized film and pictures and combined this with his private collection of fossils. Neil has been amazed at the interest and take-up of the Science Dome service and launched the Science Zone in Feb 2016 to the local community. This is a STEM based outreach (Science, Tech, Maths and Coding) and bring science to the general public and children.
Jimi has an extensive background experience in education and customer service, having worked with all ages of children from Early Years to Secondary School. He is an experienced Planetarium and Science Dome Presenter on a whole range of subjects such as space and dinosaurs.
