Discover how we started ☻

Native Scientist was founded in London in 2013 by two scientists, Joana Moscoso (biologist) and Tatiana Correia (physicist). Aware of the role in social development and cooperation that scientists could play, they developed an innovative science outreach approach based on role modelling and science and language integrated education. Fuelled by passion and commitment, Joana and Tatiana’s work and complementary skills were key to the growth of the project. Native Scientist is a spin-off of PARSUK (Portuguese Association of Researchers and Students in the United Kingdom).
