What is The Boffin Lab

It's the place that Boffins get together to make things.  In our case its the shed at the bottom of the garden where we can be found tinkering away inventing the future.

According to the dictionary a Boffin is

  • a person engaged in scientific or technical research:
  • a person with knowledge or a skill considered to be complex or arcane:

While Steven might once have fit the first definition we probably fit in better with the second one these days. You can find out a bit more about boffins on Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boffin
