What is Snapshot Science?

I'm Gemma Young, a freelance writer, editor and consultant of educational science resources since 2010.  Previous to this, I was a secondary school science teacher for eight years.

My motivation is a love for science, learning and inspiring this in others. Throughout both my careers I have strived to make science relevant, engaging and occasionally controversial and surprising.
