Last week, we welcomed Jen, our new STEM Communication Officer at the Tech School. After running away with the Questacon Science Circus last year and earning her Masters in Science Communication Outreach, Jen is excited to be part of the Banyule Nillumbik Tech School team. She has a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry and a background in dance performance/teaching and is passionate about combining these two abilities to help young people engage in STEM. She also loves to sew and create, having also worked in the textile industry for several years.
I’m looking forward to seeing the student’s enthusiasm, in person, when they’re engaging in STEM as well as being excited alongside them to learn and use all the wonderful technology that is available and the possibilities they present.
