Join us on an interactive time travelling adventure with Sir Isaac Newton himself! Coming to us live from his office on a wintery day in 1726, Isaac is sorting out all of his letters and remembering his incredible life and work as a world famous scientist, mathematician and astronomer. On this video call, you’ll have a chance to learn about Isaac’s amazing discoveries and ask him your own questions about his life, science or even the world today.
This one man show about Sir Isaac Newton is performed by the author, Professor Mike Edmunds.
