Working in Earth Sciences - Sustainable buildings


  Last updated October 19, 2017 at 1:50 pm


Stephen is a Research Fellow working in Sustainable buildings, and talks about not only his own role, but how that fits into benefiting the entire planet as a whole. He learnt that his job is as much about collaborating with other people and developing communication skills as it has been ‘being a scientist’. He didn’t realise that a scientist’s work could be involved in working out how to make the houses we live in greener, more energy efficient and cheaper to live in but was driven by a desire to make a difference to people’s lives.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature.

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.
