A former science teacher, now working in education technology, out of Melbourne (via Scotland). Making science accessible, engaging and relevant to young people is the goal. I want young people to see science isn’t just a subject studied at school. It’s a way of evaluating the world; appreciating how awesome it is and avoiding being conned by snake oil salespeople.
Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
