What is your job title?

Development Technician

Please describe your journey into STEM?

I have always had a passion for science and loved learning about science, so much that I asked for chemistry sets and planet models every birthday and Christmas. I completed a Masters in Chemistry, with a year in industry, at The University of Manchester. I then decided to take a break from science and took an internship in Peer Support at The University of Manchester, before I took on two other roles: one as a development technician at Lubrizol and the other as a Casual Explainer at the Science and Industry Museum.

What is a STEM-related question or challenge you would love to solve one day?

I want to contribute to removing the stigma that you have to be smart to do STEM. I love talking about science and finding ways to share my passion with a public audience who may have no knowledge or even interest of stem.

Why do you think the Great Science Share for Schools is important?

The Great Science Share for Schools helps with the big challenge that people don't talk about science enough, and it shows how easy and fun it is to look at a wide array of science challenges.
