Lee Constable is a science broadcaster and host of Network 10’s kids science TV show, Scope. She is also the founder of Co-Lab: Science Meets Street Art where she pairs early-career researchers and PhD students with street artists who create live murals inspired by their work for the public.
Lee has completed a Bachelor of Science (First Class Honours), Bachelor of Arts (majoring in Sociology and Drama), and Master of Science Communication at the Australian National University. In 2015 Lee toured remote and regional Australia as a presenter in the Questacon Science Circus performing live science shows for schools and communities. She also created a youth-run social justice and sustainability podcast and radio show, SoapBox which aired on 2XXFM and SYN Nation from 2015-2017. As an Education Ranger at the Australian National Botanic Gardens Lee was able to bring her love of Australia’s flora and fauna to visitors on night-time spotlight tours.
In 2018 Lee was a part of Homeward Bound, a global leadership program for women in STEMM and was aboard the largest all-female expedition to Antarctica. In 2018 Lee was also selected for the World Congress of Science and Factual Producers Emerging Producers Program which allowed her to hone her skills in developing and pitching documentary and factual series concepts.
In June 2019 she released best-selling children’s non-fiction book How to Save the Whole Stinkin’ Planet which incorporates storytelling with best-practice science education to engage young audiences in climate change and waste science through a superhero’s adventure.
In the future, Lee hopes to continue to combine her love of STEM, media, fellow-millennials and sustainability to continue to make factual content for screens of all sizes and audiences of all walks of life. She’s also going to try her hand at SciComedy! Watch this space!
