On this episode I will be sitting down with Dr. Stephanie Ryan, a chemist, boy mom, and a social media influencer who enjoys using her background to create superior educational products and content. Although an academic at heart, Dr. Ryan is passionate about learning through play and can be found helping young kids explore the fascinating world around them. Over the years, Dr. Ryan has taught science to all age groups, both in and out of the classroom, helping toddlers learn about their world and college students define theirs. She is an active member of the chemistry education community and is currently a committee member of the International Activities Committee for the Division of Chemical Education.
During this conversation we will be discussing why teaching chemistry to young kids so scary for parents and how parents and teachers can expose and teach students about chemistry without fancy chemicals, supplies or textbooks.
