A regular contributor to Australia’s CSIRO children’s magazine Scientriffic, internationally published Cairns-based poet Celia Berrell artfully combines science and rhyming verse. Her educational resources have received approval from organisations such as James Cook and Flinders Universities in Australia and the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in UK.
In 2012, with the assistance of a grant from the Regional Arts Development Fund, Science Educator Dr Clifford Jackson from James Cook University Cairns Australia, vetted over 100 Science Rhymes poems for their scientific accuracy and educational merit. The first 34 poems were released as an eBook on Amazon Kindle in October, titled “Celia Berrell’s Science Rhymes”.
