Britain's most famous particle physicist says not enough students are considering a career in science. Professor Brian Cox wants more of us to experiment with science, with women in particular being put off from what's become a male dominated industry. Well, Brian is going back to school in East London -- hoping to inspire a generation. He joined Charlene on the programme earlier.

Professor Brian Cox is running summer schools in East London to encourage more young people to take science and technology subjects. He says more women and young people from ethnic minority communities are needed.

To help fundraise for the summer schools, Professor Cox is also hosting an evening event at the Orbit on Wednesday 26th August - you can get tickets here
