ask theory, inclusive science, carina laroza

Hosted by EIC Mikael Angelo Francisco, Ask Theory shines the spotlight on Pinoy scientific brilliance, in a fun and entertaining “kwentuhan” format. Each episode of Ask Theory  features a Pinoy scientist from one of the various scientific disciplines. In a very casual conversation, guests explain what they do in simple terms, as well as share their fascinating stories: how they got into science, the challenges they face, what motivates them to pursue their fields, what future scientists from the Philippines can look forward to, and so much more.

Episode 73: Pang-Matalino Lang Ba Talaga Ang Science?

Carina Laroza is an inclusive science communication advocate and the founder of Scienkidfic Xplorers (now AghamJuan). She develops and conducts science outreach programmes for underserved communities and public schools around Metro Manila, and trains volunteers on how to effectively facilitate the programmes. She also obtained an MSc Science Communication degree at the University of the West of England, Bristol as a Chevening Scholar.

We talked about her journey as a science communicator, making science inclusive in the Philippines, things every science communicator should know, scientists as science communicators, debunking misinformation and respecting opinions, and more.
