Ryan interviews Chris MacAclister. Chris is a dad of two and is the dad behind Matilda’s Lab. Matilda’s Lab is a YouTube channel and Instagram page geared toward teaching science to adults, inspired by his daughter.
Chris MacAlister is a science communicator for parents. He founded his blog, Matilda’s Lab, when his daughter was a year old; filling it with ideas about how you can teach complex science to a child. The lessons are written for adults, not for children, so that parents can take the reigns of their children’s learning and enjoy the binding experience that discovery brings. The subject matter focuses on the science that we encounter on a day to day basis and how science and popular culture influence each other.
Based in North Wales, Chris has a degree in Zoology, quality manages a veterinary microbiology laboratory and has co-hosted a science news podcast. He combines his knowledge, experience, artistic background and sense of humour in sharing details of the most creative process in human history.
