Bernie Hobbs

Bernie Hobbs is a multi-award-winning science writer and broadcaster with ABC Science Online.

Her job lets her do two of the things she loves best - hear about what’s new in the world of science from the people who are making it happen, and turn high-brow jargon-laden material into great stories for the rest of us.

While Bernie’s background is in medical science and teaching, she’s also interested in how science and big ideas fit into real life – culturally, socially and environmentally.

She gets to explore that territory regularly as a judge on ABC TV’s The New Inventors, a new take on one of her favourite shows as a kid. “Everyone has ideas, but I love the passion and grunt that our inventors show in getting their ideas from the back of the envelope to the shed and beyond”.

When not being impressed by our country’s inventors, Bernie can be heard regularly discussing science on ABC radio, and seen having way too much fun each week in the ABC’s new science show for kids, the experiMENTALS.
