Briana is a facilitator of effective science communication, an artist, a dancer, and a traveler. Her current passion is to integrate art and science in innovative ways to promote learning and inspire people to ask scientific questions. Within unique environments, how can we effectively engage people in science and promote conceptual learning? How can we bring powerful learning experiences to local and national communities? In what ways can we design spaces and tools to provoke scientific curiosity for people of many different ages, interests, and backgrounds? Briana seeks to answer some of these questions.
Briana holds a M.S. in Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences from CU Boulder and a B.S. in Physics from Washington State University. Her extended experience as a planetarium presenter and as a graduate teaching assistant inspired her trajectory into the informal science environment with an emphasis on best teaching practices. As the Education Programs Manager at Fiske Planetarium, Briana leads the wide variety of educational programs that Fiske offers to K12, the university, and the general public.
