Bookings and Operations

Andrew joined the Inspire STEM branch of NewSpec at the beginning of 2021.

With a lifelong interest in geology, he graduated from the
University of Adelaide with a BSc degree in Palaeontology and

Andrew used SEM to image and geochemically identify bone
surface coatings for his honours project. As a result, he has
fascinating insight into cave history at Naracoorte in South Australia.

Andrew’s passion for research and science communication shines through in his work with families, teachers, and students, being incredibly engaging and knowledgeable in his teaching and training.

Andrew’s familiarity with geology, particularly in South Australia, is an
asset and will continue to enrich and inspire new content and learning opportunities for schools joining the Inspire STEM Education community.
