Mark Champkins

Mark is a product designer and the Science Museum's first  "Inventor in Residence". He is a former British inventor of the year and in 2007 successfully participated in the BBC television show, Dragons' Den, receiving investment to launch his product ideas to help pupils to concentrate at school

Mark has a background in manufacturing engineering and draws upon the knowledge and skills of British craftspeople and manufacturers to develop unique products that often showcase intriguing scientific phenomena. These include crockery that utilise self-heating phase change materials, lights with a bimetallic structure that change shape with heat, and cookware that make use of magnets to both attract and levitate objects.
