Sandy Eix has a BSc in Physics from Waterloo, a BEd from Queen’s, and an MSc and PhD in Physics from SFU. She has been inventing exhibits, programs, and shows at Science World for over 20 years. Her job lets her play with all sorts of science and share her discoveries with kids of all ages. Some highlights so far have included developing exhibitions about fuel cells, pop music, and the art and science of light; running a summer camp for teachers; creating science resources for preschoolers; training science centre professionals in Turkey; and opening Science World’s brand-new Tinkering Space. When she’s not thinking about science education, she applies her curious mind to snowboarding, Cape Breton fiddle music, navigating East Vancouver by bicycle, and learning to speak French. She explores the world with her husband and daughter, and has recently learned to call herself a “maker”.
