About the author

Dr. Sarah Habibi is a molecular biologist, educator, and digital content creator and is the founder of the brand Science Bae. As a graduate of both doctoral studies and education studies (specific focus STEAM education), Sarah has become an expert at communicating science to audiences of all ages, with a specific focus on children.

The work Sarah has done with making science accessible online has been featured in a publication in the high-impact research journal, PLOS ONE; through media appearances on popular TV broadcasts like Breakfast Television; and through interviews with news outlets like the Toronto Star and Shondaland. Sarah is also an Award-Winning public speaker. The winner of the Three-Minute Thesis competition, she delivered a talk about her PhD research in a compelling and engaging way to an audience of non-experts.

Since then, Sarah has been hired to give talks to high school and university students on topics related to women in STEAM, Science literacy online, and the work she does on TikTok with making science experiments fun. Sarah has also worked with organizations like ComSciCon and Humber College to host virtual workshops on how to effectively communicate science on social media and the importance of learning science through hands-on experimentation.

Most recently, Sarah has worked with some of the biggest brands in North America, like Procter and Gamble, as the Spokesperson for the launch of a new Vicks product in Canada, as well as social media giants like TikTok to deliver professional development workshops geared to teaching at-home science experiments to client partners. As a result, Sarah is committed to sharing her love for science with people of all ages and showcasing the power of social media as a tool for advancing science education for the next generation. She lives in Toronto.

Editorial Reviews

“Inspirational, dedicated and motivated. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Sarah Habibi. Through her online presence, she’s taught children (and adults) around the world about STEAM by making everyday science experiments in a fun, easy and interactive way. Without her knowledge and passion, the world of STEAM would be a little more boring and would be missing something: her light as a dedicated STEAM teacher. I cannot wait to read her book and do the experiments with my niece!”
—Athena Brensberger, STEM educator and digital content creator

“Sarah’s work as a STEAM educator is the perfect balance of creativity, fun, and science! As a parent, I love that her teaching style is accessible and that the experiments are engaging for all ages. I’m looking forward to diving into her experiment book with my own daughter!”
—Kellie Gerardi, bioastronautics researcher and space enthusiast

“Sarah has such an enthusiasm and passion for teaching science! I have always loved the science experiments and activities she shares. She brings fun, excitement and engagement—you almost forget you’re actually learning! As a science teacher myself, I am personally very excited to get into the experiments in her book with my students!”
—Nicole Marte, science teacher and influencer

“Sarah is a very talented teacher and national speaker. Her excitement around teaching science is a true sight to be seen. We love watching her break down complex science concepts to levels children can understand. As parents and educators, we cannot wait to jump into the experiments in her book with our son.”
—Hope and Wade King, educators and national speakers
