Podcast: STEM in the Ocean with ANMM


From marine archaeology to how boats float and much more, there is so much to learn at the Australian National Maritime Museum. It’s here where events such as Women in STEM provide a real drawcard to students to the sea! We chat with Mathew Sloane and Anna Gregory to learn what is on offer.

Matt has been a scientist and educator for 20 years in universities, research institutes and museums. He got a PhD in genetics in 2008 at Vienna University and has applied his research in the fields of cancer, epigenetics, evolutionary biology and wildlife conservation. This has involved fulfilling work like finding the cause of a person’s cancer and fun stuff like getting DNA out of wombat hair, chimpanzee poo and aphid eggs!

With Sydney Harbour at our doorstep, it’s an awesome place to learn about our connection to our waterways.
