The best thing about working in STEM is sharing it with other people! I've had a fantastic time working with all of these organisations.
is a technology centre on the South Side of Chicago. Kids aged between 9 and 14 drop in after school to learn programming and robotics, try science experiments, tend the community garden, and get homework advice. As an instructor I had a lot of fun planning an engaging but educational curriculum, and had an amazing time with these smart and hilarious kids. I miss them!

The Museum of Science and Industry
in Chicago organises an annual Science Works careers event to inspire young people to consider careers in STEM. I joined with other Fermilab students and researchers giving some interactive demonstrations about neutrinos and particle physics in general. Lots of visitors were keen to join in - and we enjoyed the other demonstrations around the museum, too.
