Adults will enjoy her unique take on science, and kids will revel in her joyous and dynamic approach to experiments and chemistry! Her exciting and engaging program leaves audiences with a positive, memorable impression of science—all while diminishing the stigma around women in science.

Her books include the Kate the Chemist fiction series; her nonfiction exploration of chemistry in our everyday lives, It’s Elemental; The Hidden Chemistry in Everything; and The Big Book of Experiments; among others. Don’t miss this dynamo in action as she explains and explores – in sometimes explosive ways – the science that is all around us!
