Katie

Katie

Science educator & Managing director

Katie is our enthusiastic science educator. She’s super passionate about science and holds a PGCE in Secondary Science and BSc in Biochemistry. She brings her experience from youth work, rugby coaching and classroom teaching into our activities and lessons.

When she’s not working, Katie is usually found outdoors with her muddy toddler.

Susie

Susie

Science educator

Susie’s background is in Early Years education and theatrical stage management. She blooming loves science and believes teaching children to engage with science is one of the most fundamental (and fun) things you can do.

Susie frequently tests out the fun-level of her science teaching on her two small children, who luckily seem to like it, and now want to be scientists and engineers (as well as pirates!) when they grow up.
