Bernie Hobbs is an award-winning science writer and broadcaster with ABC Science Online. Best known as a regular judge on ABC TV’s The New Inventors, Bernie is also the brainchild behind the online science game ABC Zoom, where you zoom down to the microscopic and molecular levels to make repairs in everything from a synchrotron to a retina. Bernie writes a regular column exploring science basics, and she can be heard talking science on radio each week, and hosting science events around the country. In previous lives she’s been a science teacher, medical researcher and one of the stars of the ABC kids’ science show the experiMENTALS. Bernie has worked in the digital sphere for over 15 years, which may explain why she’s not on Facebook and doesn’t tweet.
