Dr Vhairi Mackintosh is the Learning & Outreach Manager for the Museums & Collections Department at the University of Melbourne, which involves overseeing the annual Science Gallery Melbourne learning program that connects school-aged learners with transdisciplinary STEAM learning experiences that champion curiosity, connection and culture. After starting out in scientific research and completing a PhD in Earth Sciences, she turned her passion of working with young people into her day job. Since then, she has co-created and facilitated countless learning experiences for students and teachers, led multidisciplinary teams, managed and evaluated outreach projects, and established team operations for a new government-funded learning centre preparing young people for the future of work. She works to create more equitable opportunities for all young people, so that they have the skills and knowledge to choose any pathway.
