Ep. #2: How To Run a Science Museum

Science is all around us, but not everyone understands it. As I find myself in the office of Scitech's CEO, we discuss the work involved in leading a science centre, the role of STEM in contemporary society, and beer-drinking races.


Alan Brien is the 17-year-running CEO of Scitech, an interactive science centre that welcomes more than 300 000 visitors through its doors annually. He has played a major role in managing Australia's largest science outreach programs, developing world-travelling science exhibitions, and leading the Australia-Pacific Network of Science & Technology Centres.
