ASCers will be saddened to hear the following news of a British colleague.

 

I know there are quite a few fellow Australian science communicators who,
like me, have fond memories of Jen from the Edinburgh Science Festival in
the late 90s and early 00s.

I am sorry to have to pass on the news to BIG members that Jen Simpson, who
worked at National Museums Scotland and previously at the Edinburgh
International Science Festival died in a tragic diving accident on 6th
August. Friends, colleagues and family paid tribute at a memorial service on
Friday. 

For those of you who knew Jen (and i'm sure there are many on this list) you
will know that I cannot hope to do her justice in words. 

For those of you who were not fortunate enough to have met Jen, you should
know that she was a vivacious, enthusiastic and fun-loving communicator of
science. Many elements of the Edinburgh Science Festival and the programmes
at our various Museums are a product of her amazing imagination and drive to
engage families with science in a fun way. 

On behalf of myself and all her colleagues at National Museums Scotland I
can confidently say that she has inspired numerous colleagues and visitors
and we will all miss her dearly. 

Lyndsey.
