Podcasts & blogs


In addition to my sciencegeekgirl blog here, I blog sporadically for a couple other projects:

The Active Class is a multi-author blog focusing on the effective use of technology to increase engagement in the college classroom.

I used to blog for Expert Voices, which has since been discontinued.


Since my internship at National Public Radio’s science desk, I’ve loved using audio as a medium to communicate science. It’s intimate, appeals to younger people, and is just plain fun. Below are some of the podcasts I’ve created.

You can also visit my print publications list (including MP3’s from ye olde NPR days) and the live webcasts I did at the Exploratorium.

Learning about Teaching Physics

This podcast is my most recent brainchild, arising from my interests in science education, education research, and communication.  As of May 2011 we hav two produced episodes.  View on iTunes and Compadre and Podomatic.

We’re getting the physics education research out of those stuffy journals and into your hands (or, rather, ears) with this little audio podcast. Co-hosted by veteran high school physics teacher Michael Fuchs and physicist and education researcher Stephanie Chasteen, each episode investigates a piece of the research literature and how it can relate to your classroom.

Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears Podcast

A collaborative project with the National Science Digital Library. This podcast is geared towards elementary educators to help them use polar science to address common student misconceptions about science. This webzine won the SPORE award from AAAS for integrating science & literacy, and the episode “Warm Blankets and Cold Breezes” was featured in the presentations at the presidential ceremony for science teaching excellence.


A monthly variety show about nanotechnology created for the Nanotechnology and Informal Science Education (NISE) Network.

Science Teaching Tips

A series of podcasts created by, and for, science teachers. Includes science facts, history, and hands-on activities.

The Classic Summer Institute

A series of podcasts about our Summer Institute for teachers at the Exploratorium.
