Episode Info:

Meet Siân Keys, an educator with a passion for breaking down barriers. On this episode you'll discover why she formed Scienceability, an organisation that challenges the traditional ideas of 'who does science' by empowering people with intellectual disabilities to lead science classes for the public during National Science Week.

"What was really powerful was that during National Science Week, those participants ran a science hands-on workshop for the Canberra community. it challenged who does science and who science is for because they were the ones teaching everyone else science."

Hosted Ben Newsome from Fizzics Education

Siân Keys is also the Senior Program Officer for National Youth Science Forum
