Dr. Kate Biberdorf is a scientist, science entertainer and professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Through her theatrical and hands-on approach to teaching, Dr. Biberdorf is breaking down the image of the stereotypical scientist, while reaching students who might otherwise be intimidated by science. Students' emotional responses, rather than rote memorization of facts, are key to Biberdorf's dynamic approach to her program, as well as science in general. Her exciting and engaging program leaves audiences with a positive, memorable impression of science — all while diminishing the stigma around women in science. She has appeared on The Today Show, Wendy Williams Show, Late Night with Stephen Colbert and many others. Her book is "The STEM Night Disaster (Kate the Chemist)."
