Event Details

Rachel Ignotofsky is a New York Times Best Selling author and illustrator, based in beautiful Santa Barbara. She grew up in New Jersey on a healthy diet of cartoons and pudding, graduating from Tyler School of Art in 2011. Now Rachel works for herself and spends all day and night drawing, writing and learning as much as she can.

Her work is inspired by history and science. She believes that illustration is a powerful tool that can make learning exciting. She has a passion for taking dense information and making it fun and accessible. Rachel hopes to use her work to spread her message about scientific literacy and feminism.

This event is hosted by Theoretical Physicist, TV presenter and Science Communicator (as well as former professional footballer) Mark Langtry.

Mark educates and entertains audiences of all ages through his RTE TV show ‘Let’s Find Out’ and live shows at schools, festivals and events across the world.
