It’s been a whirlwind month, with research proposals, interviews, filming and all sorts of craziness, but I am SO EXCITED to have been offered a new job as Live Science Team Member in At-Bristol!
I began my new role a few days ago along with 3 other lovely sci-sisters – we’ve been busy with training – learning everyone’s names, the layout of the building, evacuation plans – but wait, what about the science?!
I don’t jump straight into learning the programmes quite yet – but I do get other exciting things, like a photo-shoot for the website and even my own radio number (is it sad that excites me?!)
Everyone has been incredibly welcoming and friendly and it makes it easy to see why so many people stay in the organisation for years – I can’t wait to learn from all the amazing other team members and get stuck in – especially the planetarium shows!
The team is incredibly diverse – from palaeontologists, to marine biologists, to mathematicians – I’m so keen to soak up everyone’s knowledge and get an insight into their passions – and hopefully share mine too!
Our first few days included eating Marmite on Pringles, making laser cut shadows of ourselves and flying paper helicopters over the air table in the Tinkering Space. The best part is – everyday is going to be just as varied. I love the chance to unleash my creativity in a place that encourages experimentation and curiosity – and I can’t wait to spark that fire in someone else.
Exciting times ahead!
