Lee Constable is a TV presenter, science communicator and author. Lee is the host of Scope, Network 10’s science and tech show for the young and young-at-heart. Each week the program covers topics across the STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) spectrum from sustainability to robotics to food to sport.
On 2019 World Environment Day (June 5th), Lee released her first book, How to Save the Whole Stinkin' Planet, an eco-superhero journey to train the reader in the art and science of being a Waste Warrior through hands-on activities, foul facts and garbological adventure. Lee’s background is a mixed bag of science, drama and sociology with a Bachelor of Science (Honours), Bachelor of Arts, and a Master of Science Communication Outreach. During her Masters, Lee toured remote and regional Australia as a Questacon Science Circus presenter, performing live science shows on topics like fire and flight. Lee founded, produced and hosted youth-run social justice and sustainability radio show and podcast, SoapBox, and is the founder of Co-Lab: Science Meets Street Art where collaborations between scientists and street artists result in science-inspired murals that evolve live for the public. In 2018 Lee was part of the largest ever all-female expedition to Antarctica with 80 international women in STEMM as part of the Homeward Bound leadership program. Onboard, this voyage Lee dressed as Captain Planet, a tribute to an environmental hero of her childhood and a symbol of her hope to engage young people across the world in the fight for our planet and their future. From past jobs spending evenings as an Education Ranger with a spotlight in hand showing school groups the plants and animals of the Australian National Botanic Gardens to spending days showing kids around ACT’s landfill and recycling sorting facility, there’s no environment too hot, cold, dark or smelly to warrant some youthful scientific communication.
