About Snapshot Science

I’m Gemma Young – an experienced freelancer working in science education. Previous to this I was a science teacher.

I am able to bring a wealth of experience, skills, creativity and knowledge to any science education project.

Writing

I have over twelve years experience of writing science education content in various formats for different audiences. I am a published author of textbooks, workbooks, teacher guides and assessment for major publishers. I have also written video, animation and podcast scripts; interactive activities and online content.

Editing

I can help with quality assessment and editing content in terms of scientific accuracy, pitch and against curricula including exam board specifications. I have experience in managing teams of new writers, editing their work and helping them to develop.

Consultancy

I can provide assistance in writing pitches for projects, advising content and mapping content to curricula. I can use my extensive knowledge on all aspects of science education to give inciteful advice on creating top-quality teaching and learning resources as well as CPD materials for educators.

Curriculum design

I have a keen interest in using up-to-date pedagogy based on educational research and have been involved in several projects that utilise this. I have co-designed innovative science curricula and have helped write the ASE’s 11-14 curriculum (Wikid and Segue) and the AQA KS3 syllabus.
