More about Shane Hengst: 

I am the Physics Outreach manager at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. My goal is to raise the awareness of science, in particular physics and astronomy, to the community.

I organise physics and astronomical public events, design and deliver scientific workshops, and develop teaching programs targeted at school students. Our most valuable asset is our StarLab, an inflatable portable planetarium, that is most popular with school groups. I have been delivering StarLab shows since 2008 and I am about to launch our new digital portable planetarium.

I also enjoy doing research; I am currently a part-time PhD student studying debris discs in planetary systems.
