Maddie Moate is a YouTube filmmaker and BAFTA award winning presenter, passionate about curiosity. She has been presenting popular science and tech content online for the past 6 years and has amassed over 18 million views on her YouTube films across multiple channels.
One of the only female “Edu-tubers” in the UK, Maddie also has her own successful YouTube channel. Here she makes films which combines the traditional YouTube style with educational content. Her videos aim to inspire a new audience to stay curious, adventurous and encourage science engagement.
Since 2016, Maddie has hosted the hit Cbeebies series Do You Know?, which sees her explore the workings of everyday objects by asking how they are made or work, all made possible with special cameras and animations. In 2017, Maddie triumphed in the presenter category at the BAFTA Children’s Awards and has since starred in the Cbeebies Christmas Show in both 2017 and 2018.
She has also hosted Springwatch Wild Academy (BBC), Cloud Challenge (CNBC) and items for This Morning (ITV).
Maddie started her career in technology presenting LadyGeek TV, a comedy web series for women about apps and online security. From here she was approached by O2 to host O2 Guru TV and went on to create the online content for Channel 4’s 'Home of the Future'. Maddie now regularly works with various technology giants, including Dixons Carphone, Samsung and Intel.
Her YouTube presence and love of wildlife lead to presenting BBC Earth’s YouTube channel Earth Unplugged. With Earth Unplugged, Maddie investigates the conundrums and quirks of our amazing planet and in doing so has hatched alligators, been covered in leeches and even swam with prehistoric fish! Maddie has fronted the channel since it started in 2012. It has over 600,000 subscribers and won a Panda award from Wildscreen in 2014 for Best New Media. These successes grabbed the attention of BBC America, who turned some of her best bits into a one off special television programme “It’s a Mad Mad Maddie World”.
Aside from digital content and television, Maddie also brings science to the stage, writing, producing and hosting shows for her audience.
Maddie is a patron of the Youth STEM Awards (YSA) scheme and an ambassador for Eureka: The National Children’s Museum.
