Building a career from the Science Circus

Building a career from the Science Circus


The science circus has really been, the foundation
that my entire career has been built on. I came across the Science Circus just by chance
and it’s really sent me off on a tangent from bing a scientist, which, I love the science
but I knew a career in research, in labs, that wasn’t for me. So it sent me off into
the Science Communication area and that has been a career that has been extremely fruitful,
for me. [Dramatic orchestral music] The cyclical, yeah, it seems to be something
that has kind of put me out there. I’ll take the bike out to all sorts of venues. I’ve done corporate Christmas parties, lots of things around the ANU, busking in Garema place
and set up with the bike to do shows and science activities for kids. [Explosion]
[Dramatic orchestral music] It’s really just a way that you can take science
into places where usually it would be either difficult to take it or logistically impossible,
and just kind of rock up and have a little base to do science engagement, and have a
fun way to teach science to anyone of shows up. [Dramatic orchestral music]
