An immunology and genetics student at The University of Adelaide, Sophia Taplin spent a few amazing months channelling her keen interest in science and communications as an intern for Australia’s Science Channel. She also loves dinner time convos but gets distracted trying to teach her pet canary to speak English.
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.
