Longer Version
 

Fiona Bayrock is the author of children's quirky science books, including BUBBLE HOMES AND FISH FARTS, a book about the amazing ways animals use bubbles. She also brings the "Ew!", "Cool!", and "Phew!" of science to kids and teens in 60+ articles in magazines such as Highlights for Children, YES Mag, KNOW and Odyssey.  

Fiona was born under the prairie sun, grew up with her toes in the Pacific Ocean, and spent many years throwing snowballs North of 60. She's always enjoyed playing with words, but was well into adulthood before discovering her passion for science. After completing a Commerce Degree at the University of British Columbia, she realized she was far more interested in why something is the way it is than managing the profits from it. Science rocks! Off she went for a dose of university science. She was---pardon the pun---in her element.  

Over the years, Fiona has chased questions through most of the "ologies", talking to scientists around the world about all kinds of neat stuff, and then sharing what she finds with the most curious beings on the planet---kids. "Amazing science is all around us. Every day, I share the small part that appears in my magnifying glass." she says. Her goal is to inspire kids to ask questions about their world, to have them make connections and create their own Eureka! moments by ‘checking stuff out’. Her writing is conversational in style and peppered with humour, wordplay, hands-on activities and simulations to make complicated concepts kid-friendly and easily understood.  

Fiona lives with her family in rural Chilliwack, British Columbia. She enjoys visiting schools and speaking at conferences and workshops. See more about Fiona and her work at www.fionabayrock.com.
