Who created "Cool Science"?

Maria Macedo, PhD.

Maria Macedo

Hello everyone ! My name is Maria and I am happy to share with you on how I have come up to create "Cool Science" for kids.

I am a biologist with 14 years of laboratory experience, in different countries. In 2012, I received my PhD in Neuroscience from the VU University of Amsterdam for the study of "The genetics of early onset Parkinsonism."

In addition, and previously to that, in Porto, I was offered by the local College of Education, the chance to develop and deliver a one-year science program for gifted children. Working closely with those knowledgeable, naturally curious and highly demanding children, represented a fantastic challenge, at first, and eventually one of the most fulfilling experiences I ever had, which inspired me to create, some years later, "Cool Science" in Lausanne.


Finally, in 2013, I interrupted my scientific career to join my husband in his relocation to Lausanne and to better support our two lovely children.

Currently, I am happy to do what I love – teaching science to young kids - and am looking forward to developing further my educational project: "Cool Science"!
