I like to produce Science resources that are of a topical nature, both Science and Mathematics games and Science resources with a practical theme. I have taught Science and Mathematics, been a writer for the Science Upd8 program, exam writer with Biology Olympiad (NZ) and Senior Biology lecturer at Unitec Step-Up program, NZ. Should you experience any problem with my resources - contact me and I'll change it and send you a replacement.
