Hi! I’m Clare Dibble. As a scientist and a mother, I’m disappointed with science can seem more like a pile of facts than a creative method of inquiry. I want my kids and all children to understand that science is not just a subject that you are good or bad at. Rather, science is like mindfulness in that it is a practice of paying attention on purpose in a specific way.
Here I am, about the age of my target readers, enjoying the water like a mermaid. This is long before I knew I would grow up to get a Ph.D. in chemical engineering and work as a research scientist. And even longer before I knew I would write children’s books that combined adventure and science.
This is me around the same age with my My Little Pony bag in the background. I enjoy my new hat as well as my love for fantastical horse based creatures like Unicorns.
Now I live in Colorado with my family. I have a son and a daughter that are both very interested in their own slices of the world. If you would like to get in touch, reach out to clare at elementofscience dot com.
