Science Chat – Episode 30: Explorer’s Education in the marine…

by webmaster on December 1, 2011

In this episode of Science Chat, episode 30, I talk to Dr John Joyce who founded the Explorers Education programme in the Marine Institute of Ireland to start young people off on the road to becoming marine scientists at an early age… in fact at the primary school level.
This is another great example of someone just getting stuck in and making things happen in science education – and this is also an example of a programme which has been able to integrate with the education curriculum. The programme has quite a cool website with some illustrations by Dr Joyce himself and you can find it at
The podcast can be found in the usual place… as well as on iTunes, and as usual, you can contact me either through the blog or through twitter.

Hello Sean,

I love your website. How did you become interested in science? Are you a science educator or just a concerned parent? I believe that there are many benefits for society if we can motivate our children to take more interest in science. I have a hunch that you may feel similar-have a great day!

Hi Mike, thanks for your comments. I’m a science communicator with a special interest in how science is communicated through education and outreach… as well as all the other usual science communication interests. I had a look at your site, and I thought it was very interesting – you should check out John’s (the subject of the podcast episode) site as I think you may have some things in common.
