Science Communication

Kat Does Maths

I currently stream three times a week on my twitch channel KatDoesMaths

Whilst I love the more traditional methods of science communication, and will take any opportunity to get involved in outreach events, I wanted to join the ever-growing community of science streamers on twitch. I find that twitch provides a unique opportunity to have less formal science communication, where there is no constraint on time limit or objective to be met, and the conversation between educator and audience can be more organic and cover topics in a manner that is not necessarily suited to a formal video or lecture. That’s not to say I don’t want to bring some of the traditional rigor to my twitch stream - I’d love to do an occasional lecture every now and then, for my benefit as much as yours, since I am hoping to use the platform to not only share my passion for mathematics, but also improve how I get that point across.

STEM Ambassador

I have been a STEM Ambassador since 2017, joining the program in my third year of undergrad as an Ambassador to the Wales Hub. Since then I have volunteered as on-the-day support at large events such as Brain Games organised by the School of Psychology Cardiff University, and Maths Inspiration at the Bristol Hippodrome. I have also worked as part of a team running smaller workshops in primary schools teaching coding with the BBC Micro:bit, where students designed, created and coded a wearable product which played rock paper scissors upon shaking the device.
