About Dr. Colleen Kelley

Dr. Colleen Kelley is the Creator and Founder of Kids’ Chemical Solutions which is a comic-book-based curriculum for kids ages 8 – 108. Her journey as a chemist began at The University of Richmond where she received her B.S. in Chemistry.  She fell in love with the world of discovery and research and wanted to continue to explore more chemistry, so she completed her Ph.D. in chemistry at Penn State University at the age of 24.

Fast forward 30 years later to the tail-end of her career teaching chemistry at the University of Arizona, Colleen finds herself captivated by the question, “Why do my students think chemistry is SO hard?” What she has discovered is that learning chemistry is very much like learning how to read and she created the term Molecular Literacy to describe how chemistry is best understood.

With interviews with leading science educators and STEM thought leaders, this science education podcast is about highlighting different ways of teaching kids within and beyond the classroom. It’s not just about educational practice & pedagogy, it’s about inspiring new ideas & challenging conventions of how students can learn about their world!
