Monday Science (part of STEAM:ED Collective) is a listener-driven engaging weekly podcast bringing you the latest research and news in Science, Technology, Medicine and Health. Hosted by award winning scientist Dr Bahijja Raimi-Abraham, she also answers your questions or finds experts in the field to answer them for you!
Monday Science started in May 2020 and by the end of 2020 had close to 2000 downloads, listeners from all over the world in 35 countries and close to 200 active listeners.
Monday Science was added to Anchor’s Amplifying Black Voices playlist on Spotify in July 2020 and recently received funding from the Royal Society of Chemistry towards a project aimed at opening up conversations about diversity in chemical sciences and engaging the public with chemistry using creative approaches.

Ellie Roberts is an Arts and Sciences undergraduate student at University College London were she is interested in the brain and science communication. Ellie has a focus on the relationship between science and society concerning responsible reporting of scientific findings and public engagement. Ellie has developed this interest through reading about “neurosexism”, the practice of seeking out sex differences in the brain, such as discarding "negative" results of no difference, and the popularisation of such unreliable findings and how they reinforce gender inequality. Additionally, Ellie is passionate about diversity in STEM due to the consequences of its absence, particularly the lack of equivalent research surrounding women’s health.
"I would like to produce content that is reliable, accessible and engaging, reflecting exciting contemporary research and issues within science to encourage those from different backgrounds to pursue a career in STEM."
