* Sarah Glover

Sarah went to school and studied in South Africa, obtaining her BSc(Hons) degree with distinction and an Honours project in computational chemistry where she studied the inclusion of gas molecules in metal-organic framework molecules for possible application in gas storage and carbon dioxide filters. Throughout her undergraduate degree she was involved in outreach, but it was during this honours year that her interest in chemistry outreach in particular began. So although playing with models and doing mathematical calculations all day kept her occupied, she realised there was more to life and a greater interest in education and outreach developed.

This led to an MSc degree in Chemical Education in 2009 at Rhodes University in Grahamstown with her thesis entitled, 'The Implementation and Evaluation of a Service Learning Module in a Second Year Organic Chemistry Course.'

After this she obtained her PGCE by studying part time and worked as a high school teacher, teaching Mathematics and Physical and Natural Sciences for two years at Victoria Girls' High School in Grahamstown.

She is currently doing a PhD in Science Education and Chemistry Outreach at the University of Bristol, working with Tim Harrison and Dudley Shallcross.
