One of my favourite things is telling anyone who would listen about how awesome animals, zoology and science are. This goes very well with my job as a teaching fellow – but it’s hardly enough!
I have also taken part in the following science communication endeavours:
FameLab is a competition where scientists have three minutes to present a scientific concept without the use of PowerPoint.
I won FameLab Poland 2014, and received the International Alumni Award at FameLab International Final. Videos of my talks can be seen here.
I gave a talk at TEDx Warsaw in March 2013; the video and script of my talk can be found here.
“I’m a Scientist” is a free online event where school students meet and interact with scientists. It’s an X Factor-style competition between scientists, where the students are the judges.
Soapbox Science creates opportunities for scientists to talk about their work to the public, and creates a community promoting and supporting women in science.
Science stand-up comedy
I have performed at a number of science stand-up comedy events, e.g. Museums Showoff, Comedy at the Cole, Bright Club Oxford and Pierwszy Stand-up Naukowy.
Science: Polish Perspectives
A popular science conference organised interchangeably in Oxford and Cambridge since 2012.
I have been a media officer at SPP2014 and 2015. Read more about the conference here.
How Do They Do It?
I have been an expert on Season 13 of How Do They Do It?, shown on Discovery Channel.
E(x)plory is a world of scientific passion, ground-breaking research and innovative solutions. We select Young Scientists and innovators aged between 13 and 20, and we support their growth.
I have been an invited speaker at E(x)plory events. I am also an ambassador of the programme.
