In this SXSW Session, Madeline Hollern from Austin Monthly interviews Kate to learn how a young girl from Kalamazoo, Michigan turned into what The New York Times called “a contemporary update of science popularizers like Bill Nye the Science Guy or Donald “Mr. Wizard” Herbert”. Kate talks about Mrs. Kelli Palsrok, her high school chemistry teacher that inspired her to pursue science, and delves into the history of her Fun with Chemistry outreach program. Madeline asks Kate about her favorite experiments, and how she feels about the latest TikTok ban at the University of Texas.
