Overview

My goal is to spread science knowledge to the world. If you have some science content that you need "translated" into something your visitors or customers will understand, I can do that for you at a great price. Science doesn't have to be dense and boring; I can create clear content that will engage and educate.

I enjoy learning and writing about new things; and though my background is in physical science, I have the skills to research and write on any science topic, from medical technologies to environmental issues to quantum mechanics. I...

Service Description

I have a BS in Physics and Astronomy, and a Graduate Diploma in Science Communication. Telling people about science is my passion. Many children and even adults believe that science is difficult and boring, and it's my goal to show people that it doesn't have to be.

My speciality is in writing science articles for the general public. This could be for magazines, newspapers, blogs, etc. I can also write in a style more suited for educating policy makers on an specific issue (briefing notes), press releases, or book chapters. Whether the audience is the curious public or those to who need to be informed for other reasons, I can deliver your content clearly, quickly, and cheaply.

I also write content for children, from preschool to high school. I can write age-appropriate articles for use in school, extra-curricular activities, or at home. I can create fun, educational activities and experiments that teach a variety of topics. I will write instructions and include the necessary science background. These activities can range from something they can do in 30 minutes with common materials, to more advanced science fair-style projects.
