Facilitator Profile

Jollybops Science was established in 2002 by experienced teachers Mark Nicholl (Drama) and Trevor Atkinson (B.Ed. Science).

Trevor Atkinson aka The Jolly Professor has a wealth of scientific knowledge.  Trevor ‘s ability to impart complex scientific concepts within the many branches of Science such as Chemistry (Chemical World), Physics (Physical World), Biology (Living World) and Earth and Space, to vastly differing aged infants and Primary school students, has been applauded by countless teachers.

Mark Broughton aka Rusty the Robot is an accomplished Scientist (B.Sc. Hons) with over 15 year’s performance experience.  Mark’s humour and wit, filled with memorable comic one liners, helps engage students in every presentation.
