Steph Bryant is the Youth and Schools Programme Co-Director for the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion. She and Lizzie Henderson (Youth and Schools Programme Co-Director) are available to provide lessons, workshops and talks on the interactions of science and faith for children, young people and students of all ages in a variety of classroom, school society and other contexts.
Steph holds a degree from Cambridge University specialising in Conservation Science, Ecology, Physiology and Evolutionary and Behavioural Biology. Steph has been involved in a number of conservation and communication projects since graduating, from studying wolves in Bulgaria, to frogs and salmon in Canada, and working with local communities and landowners to reduce human-wildlife conflict.
She is fascinated by the interactions of science and faith, and is particularly passionate about encouraging consideration of the roles and responsibilities that faith groups have in caring for the natural world. Steph enjoys and is confident working with young people from a wide range of backgrounds, worldviews and ages. Previously, she worked full time to coordinate the God and the Big Bang project, a Church of England schools’ science and faith communication project. She now contributes her significant expertise to The Faraday Institute’s Youth and Schools Programme.
