Conversation with Kate the Chemist

Dr. Kate Biberdorf, also known as Kate the Chemist by her fans, is a science professor at UT-Austin by day and a science superhero by night (well, she does that by day, too). Kate travels the country building a STEM army of kids who love science as much as she does. You can often find her breathing fire or making slime--always in her lab coat and goggles. You can visit Kate on Instagram and Facebook @KatetheChemist, on Twitter @K8theChemist, and online at KatetheChemist.com.

She is also the author of KATE THE CHEMIST: THE BIG BOOK OF EXPERIMENTS, a full-color non-fiction book featuring 25 fun, kid-friendly experiments kids can do in their own kitchens. Readers will learn how to make slime, fake tattoos, edible snot, glitter volcanoes and more—all with the help of step-by-step instructions, ingredients lists, stunning photographs, a messiness factor rating, safety reminders, and a note from Kate about how each fun-tastic experiment works! ​

The fun doesn't stop there! She is also the author of The Kate the Chemist fiction series that features a 10-year-old Kate the Chemist who, along with her friends and little brother Liam, solves problems in her community with the help of science! This series shows kids that science truly is everywhere. 

Psst. . . I heard Kate the Chemist is going to do an experiment. . . acid on fruit!

You won't want to miss it!
