Biography

Together with Steph Bryant, Lizzie Henderson coordinates the three main strands of the Youth and Schools Programme: workshops for children and young people; training for teachers and influencers; and book and resource production (each supported by and feeding into educational research).

Lizzie holds a degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, specialising in Evolutionary and Behavioural Biology, Geology and the History and Philosophy of Science. She has long held a strong interest in the communication and public understanding of the interactions of science and faith and has also worked with children and young people in a variety of contexts for many years.

Lizzie has been building the Faraday Institute’s Youth and Schools Programme since 2013 and has seen many thousands of students respond enthusiastically to the combination of hands-on science with honest, dynamic and thought-provoking discussion about science, faith and their interactions. She also consults and advises on several collaborative projects working to develop new, inter-disciplinary approaches to education.
