Dr Joe Ireland


I am Dr Joseph Ireland, and I have been working in science education since 2000 in all areas from Kindergarten to Tertiary. I began teaching in the Northern Territory as a High School science teacher, but now have taken to freelance shows as a much more personally rewarding experience. I now tour various shows across Australia, engaging student young and old in the Wonders of Life and Science!

I bring an infectious love of life and learning to any educational environment, and really enjoy the challenge of making people of all ages think! Kids have a great time learning with Dr Joe! (and teachers too!)
