A little about Ann's career...so far!
Ann worked for the BBC in London as a camerawoman for 15 years where she operated cameras on a wide range of studio, location and outside broadcast programmes. During this time Ann studied mathematics and computing with the Open University and enjoyed studying so much that she left the BBC to study full-time at Aberdeen University.
Four years, a course change and a First Class Honours Degree in Zoology later, Ann wasn't quite ready to return to work so went to the Macaulay (now James Hutton) Institute. Three years, and an MPhil in Zoology later, Ann decided to join Satrosphere Science Centre (now Aberdeen Science Centre) as an Explainer.
Ann was promoted to Shows Manager and then to Shows and Outreach Manager at Satrosphere. This meant she got to travel all over the North of Scotland delivering science workshops in schools and at science festivals and community events.
Ann then moved to TechFest-SetPoint to set up and deliver their new primary outreach programme. During this time, Ann received a newsletter from the K'NEX User Group which contained an article titled "Earning money from K'NEX".
And, as they say, the rest is history...
P.S. That was over 10 years ago, and Ann is delighted to have had the privilege of working with pupils, teachers, families and professional organisations throughout Scotland.
Here's to the next 10 years of doing the best job in the world!
Thank you for your kind comments...
