Budding Scientists is the brainchild of mum and science educator Lana Brown. After completing her Science degree, Lana embarked on a journey that would take her from environmental education in the quiet woods of Ohio to science education in a children’s museum in bustling Washington DC to most recently, CSIRO Education in Sydney where she developed and presented science shows & workshops for years K-12 for over 11 years. Lana made the choice in late 2015 to focus on science education in her home town on the sunny Central Coast of NSW, and Budding Scientists was born!

“I wake up every morning excited to share the wonders of science to the world. At a time where students are moving away from STEM subjects and towards other careers, now, more than ever, we need to educate and inspire our youth and the greater community on the importance and wonders of science in our everyday lives.” – Lana
