Welcome to Sjoanda Creative
Sjöanda Creative is about exploring science as an exquisite, well organised art form. Here, you will find pages detailing the various approaches followed in the pursuit of elegance and discovery.
Sjoanda Creative are Jenny Lawson and David Hughes. Jenny is a private tutor with many years of experience working with children of all abilities and cultures. David is a well established lecturer/speaker and has spoken extensively around the region, covering topics as diverse as Electronic Music and Astronomy. He also appears regularly on BBC Radio Newcastle's Morning Phone-In shows so he's no stranger to working in the public eye.
Sjoanda are based in the North East of England and, at present, our main activity is to educate and inform. We're working closely with Life in the City of Newcastle upon Tyne to promote science and technology by way of a diverse range of artistic endeavours.
We believe that science should be interesting and fun, not dumbed down to the point of juvenile parlour tricks meant to entertain the lowest common denominator. That approach doesn't work. What we will do is make you think and think hard, about the world we live in, what we believe and how we arrive at conclusions using a fact-based approach to learning rather than 'fluffy' logic (as we like to call it).
