Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE

Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock is a passionate space scientist, television presenter, author, and STEM speaker. In 2009, Maggie was awarded an MBE for her services to science education.

Her first TV programme, Do We Really Need the Moon? (2011) brought her to the attention of the masses and showed that space science needn’t be difficult to access and understand. The show earned her the Talkback Thames New Talent Award in December 2011.

She has since won several awards for her expertise, including the ‘Out of the Box Thinking Award’ by Yale University, and the William Thomson, Lord Kelvin Medal and Prize by the Institute of Physics for her public engagement in sciences.

She has also been named an honorary doctor of science by the University of Bath, University of Leicester, and Loughborough University, and has been recognised on the UK Powerlist’s ‘Top Most influential Black People’ three times.
