Caz Winkworth


Caz has been interested in astronomy since the age of 4 thanks to her father's enthusiasm for star spotting. She got her first telescope when she was 16 and went on to study a MSci in Physics with Astrophysics AND an MSc in Quantum Fields and Fundamental Forces.

Caz now has a PhD from Bristol in Astrophysics - specialising in high redshift galaxy clusters – and a PGCE in secondary science - so try to catch her out with a physics question if you can!

Before realising her passion for outreach education, she worked as a scientist for the government, but her career has now taken a even more valuable direction for children and young people around her! She has considerable experience sharing her knowledge through delivering school workshops and as a brownie leader.

Despite being trained as a secondary school teacher, her creative nature, wide-ranging knowledge and interests and enthusiasm is an ideal combination for life on the road with the Dome!
