Jessica Garrett is a science educator/author and a voice actress who thinks kids are fabulous. She loved writing slimy, kid-friendly “ICK-speriments” with her co-authors Joy Masoff and Ben Ligon, in the truly disgusting, yet totally interesting, Oh Ick! 114 Science Experiments Guaranteed to Gross You Out! She has also written several not-so-gross, yet totally engrossing elementary science textbooks. After studying biology and medicine, Garrett taught math and science in public schools, and designed and taught K-12 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) curriculum at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for field trips, schools, summer camps, and teacher workshops. Kids love her enthusiastic school performances and her youthful, friendly nature.
