Lee Constable is a factual TV & online presenter working across the Venn diagram of STEM, society, and the arts to bring complex topics to audiences in new and exciting ways. Lee is best known for hosting Australian science and tech TV show, Scope (Network 10) from 2016-2020. She is also the founder of ‘Co-Lab: Science Meets Street Art’ where scientist-street artist collaborations and conversations result in massive murals and public conversations about tricky topic. In 2019 Lee authored kids’ book, ‘How to Save the Whole Stinkin’ Planet’ (Penguin) which is an eco-superhero adventure through waste in all its stinky, slimy and scientific glory!

Lee is a farm kid in the city, having grown up on her family’s sheep farm in rural NSW during the millennium drought. This origin story compelled Lee to study environmental science and plant science but, dissatisfied with the idea of choosing between science, humanities and the stage, Lee enrolled in a Science/Arts double degree with arts majors in both sociology and drama. This combination may have confused her peers at the time as “Those things don’t really go together, do they?” became an all too common reaction. However, after completing an honours in Biology, Lee discovered one epic intersect in this multidisciplinary mixed bag of passions: science communication. In 2015 Lee toured remote and regional Australia performing live fire and flight science shows in the Questacon Science Circus while completing a Masters in science communication.

Some of Lee’s life adventure highlights include: Guiding after-dark spotlight tours of the Australian National Botanic Gardens as an Education Ranger; Showing kids and community groups around the landfill and recycling sorting facility while working in waste communications; A 3-week Antarctic voyage on a ship full of women in STEMM from around the world; and, commentating the RoboWars Australia championships in front of a raucous crowd.
Lee is an early career representative on the board of Science and Technology Australia, and is a member of the steering committee, and digital producers sub-committee of the World Congress of Science and Factual Producers.

Lee currently works as an MC and professional factual presenter on stages and screens of all sizes and hosts a livestream talkshow ‘Climate Australia’ (Cimpatico TV). She enjoys working with organisations across sectors to help them create entertaining and accurate content on complex topics for millennials and gen Z. Her hobbies include scuba diving, cosplaying as Captain Planet, talking climate and science on Twitch, and dabbling in comedy to laugh about the big stinkin’ problems that might otherwise make her cry! You can find Lee on social media as @Constababble, constantly babbling about STEM, society, the arts and more!
