I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow working on the Wellcome Trust, ESRC and NSF funded 'STEM Teens' project. This project is a collaboration between researchers at the University of Exeter and North Carolina State University. The key focus of the project is to longitudinally examine the experiences of youth educators at informal science learning sites. Specifically, whether taking part in such a program influences science engagement, motivation and interest - especially for those who are typically under-represented in the STEM fields.
