Sheena Cruickshank’s interest in science began with her brother’s fascination with marine life. As children in Scotland, they explored nearby tide pools and collected sea anemone and other creatures. Realizing that many people don’t have experiences that provide this window into the wonder of science and discovery, public engagement has been a way for her to share her appreciation for science.
