Hi everyone,

I'm a science communicator, currently working in Bruxelles as a project manager at Ecsite, the European network of science centres and museum. I have been involved in several science museums in France, and used to be a science explainer at the Palais de la découverte (Universcience) in Paris. In another life, I am a theater artist and performer.

Buongiorno everyone.

Thanks for inviting me to this discussion.

My name is Martha. I live in Milan, Italy.

I have a background in physics and I got involved in science communication at the School in Science Communication at Sissa, Trieste, where I took an MA which somehow sealed a truce between my need for human touch and my hard science studies.

I have been lecturing at the School since 2004, but my main professional activity has always been in publishing. I have been the editor of the popular science series Gálapagos at Sironi Editore and of study aid materials at Alpha Test until last January, when I moved to educational publishing.

I am now head of science textbooks at Mondadori Education. I am in charge of products (both books and multimedia) aimed at high school and intermediate school (11-18 years old students).

I am Barbara from Vienna, Austria.

Following my PhD in Molecular Genetics I happened to find my way into science communication in 1998, first on bioscience topics at "dialog gentechnik".

Now I am executive manager of the Austrian association "science center network", a very diverse network of 120 partners interested in hands-on science-center-activities. We facilitate the network, organise meetings and trainings on interactive science communication (all sciences, also humanities), initiate and organise projects (travelling exhibitions, workshops, school projects, discussion games, etc.) for all age groups and are involved in accompanying research on such activities.

Looking forward to the discussions,
Barbara Streicher

I´m Andrea from Graz, Austria.
I studied biology and actually I´m working on my PhD in Science Education (the topic is fostering cognitive competences in cooperations between formal and non-formal learning).
Since 1997 I´m the director of a small science education center that offers programs to support IBSE in kindergarten, primary schools and lower secondary schools. We also are engaged in professional development activities for teachers, development of settings and tools for IBSE and action research about teaching and learning.
Thanks for inviting me to this discussion, I`m looking forward to an interesting exchange.
