Facilitator Profile

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

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.
