Dr Hal's mission is to produce educational games designed to engage players in subjects and get them to learn through play.

The range has started with Dr Hal's Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Recycling Trumps and will be extended in 2009 with Dr Hal's Famous Inventions, History, Works-of-Art and Geography Trumps. All of these products are meticulously researched by experts in the field, normally from Universities, but also from government-funded research establishments (e.g. The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory). Teachers can also request teachers packs which include resources for classroom use including explanation on how the trump factors were arrived at, ideas for further discussion and ideas for further classroom activities.

Dr Hal is a Principal Lecturer in Chemistry at the University of Brighton where he has been for 13 years. Before that he was a lecturer in Organic Chemistry at the University of Natal, Durban. He teaches undergraduate Chemistry, Biology and Pharmacy students and has a full programme of live chemistry events including his Bigger Bang! Show tour and Guided Tour of the Darker Reaches of the Periodic Table events.
