Hi, I’m Asti! I’m 25, I have over 6 years experience as a science communicator, and during the day I’m working my dream job as a Science Presenter with a travelling school incursion company (Mad About Science). I’ve had consistently excellent feedback from the schools I’ve visited, most notably for my knowledge level and my ability to explain science concepts to any age group. My favourite part of presenting (aside from getting to play with dry ice and worm farms) is being inundated with questions from kids at the ends of my sessions, because I love the questions they come up with and I love blowing their minds with the answers. Most importantly, I like being challenged by questions I can’t answer off the top of my head, because this pushes me to be constantly updating and building on my own science knowledge, as well as presenting an opportunity to teach kids about the importance of scientific literacy and doing one’s own research to answer questions.
Ever since I was little, I’ve loved learning about the world around us, and understanding why things do what they do. I’ve dedicated my life to the pursuit of knowledge and scientific understanding, and I’m highly confident in my ability to teach anyone not just the correct answers, but how to work the answers out for themselves. I see science as a lens through which we can view the universe, and it makes life so much more interesting to know how things work.
Let me share my enthusiasm and knowledge with you 🙂
