Meet Our Awesome Twisted Team

TwistED is the brainchild of Kathy who has her finger on the pulse in Echuca. She oversees Marketing, sales and business development and is of course a director but you’ll still see her on the floor chatting with visitors at twistED.

Mitch is our technical officer and is the guru of the playzone. His skills are wide and varied and he’s always a hit with the kids. They love his sometimes wild professor outlook and his sense of fun. His science knowledge makes him a great asset.

Since joining the team, Claire has taken on the sometimes challenging task of coordinating and presenting school group workshops and has been an integral part of twistED tots and Science club. She is also involved in session development and on the floor activities and is an expert in science communication, especially with children.

The Management staff are ably assisted by the great team on the floor at twistED. This group keeps visitors happy and gently guides them through each phase of experimenting. Our on the floor staff include Donna, Ellie, Amy and Jacob. Working behind the scenes, Robyn keeps us all organised and ready to go while Maxine gives Kathy a second pair of hands.

The Twisted on Wheels team is on the road from our Melbourne Warehouse almost daily, with Ben directing the traffic. He keeps things ticking over and has his finger on Marketing, Sales and HR. He liaises with Kathy in Echuca to make sure both teams are on the same page with maintaining our vision and values and concentrating on business growth.

Ben is ably supported by Sara who is the organization Guru and makes sure each and every event runs smoothly. From warehouse management to staff communication, she pulls it all together.

Our Presenters are the key staff that are out there meeting the public and presenting our parties and workshops. Their backgrounds and experience varies, but the thing they all share is their passion for science and science communication. Meet the team.

Our team has a passion for science and a desire to showcase science in a new and creative way. Our “no instructions“ policy reflects our philosophy of starting everyone on an equal footing –no gender or age bias and from all walks of life and every ethnic background. No instructions- no boundaries to creativity.

We are perfect for 3 – 12 year olds and their families, teachers, carers and communities.

We provide great exhibits, which are truly hands-on and truly minds-on. Each exhibit offers something to touch or do and engage the brain.
They involve different senses and learning styles, and create the environment for every child to become an engineer, an architect, a builder and a scientist. Some are quickly understood; some engage the visitor in considered thought, or in-depth construction while others satisfy the need for fast and furious play.

For those who hesitate and find it difficult to start there is a scientwist on the floor, to encourage and guide you.

Learning at twistED science is self-initiated, self-directed, open-ended, fun and real science. Become immersed in private discovery or group participation.

Like many things in life, the more you put in, the more you get out of twistED science!
