Book for an event

Lee Constable is a science and sustainability presenter and edu-tainer. She is best known for hosting Network 10 kids’ science TV show Scope. Her TV appearances also include Studio 10, ABC News Breakfast and War on Waste (Season Three). Lee is the author of How to Save the Whole Stinkin’ Planet: A Garbological Adventure and How to Save the Whole Blinkin' Planet: A Renewable Energy Adventure.
Growing up on her family’s sheep farm in rural New South Wales during severe drought inspired Lee to pursue her interest in science, climate and the environment in a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science (Honours). While studying a Masters
of Science Communication she toured remote and regional Australia in the Questacon Science Circus, hosted a radio show on 2XXFM and SYN Nation, and founded Co-Lab: Science Meets Street Art. Lee’s other adventures included guiding night-time spotlight tours of the National Botanic Gardens, giving tours of a landfill and recycling sorting facility and commentating robot battles.
In 2018 Lee embarked on an Antarctic journey as part of an all-women in STEM voyage. She used this experience to create Antarctica: The Twitch-u-mentary – an eight-hour livestreamed interactive edu-taining experience on her Twitch channel where she also talks science.
From spending evenings as an Education Ranger with a spotlight in hand showing school groups the plants and animals of the Australian National Botanic Gardens to spending days showing kids around ACT's landfill and recycling sorting facility, there's no environment too hot, cold, dark or smelly to warrant some youth-friendly scientific communication.
Lee regularly presents Instagram and Tiktok explainer videos for her own channels as well as other organisations and works as an MC and freelance science and sustainability communicator. In her spare time, she enjoys scuba diving and delivering science-y stand-up comedy routines as her Drag King alter ego Milton MANgo. You can find Lee constantly babbling on all social media platforms as @Constababble.
