Tessa Vossen studied biology and Science, Communication and Society at Leiden University. The topics of her masters’ main research were ethnobotany and science communication. The ethnobotanical study focused on the use of medicinal plants for children’s cultural bound syndromes among traditional Maroon tribes in Suriname. The science communication study focused on the readability of patient information forms (informed consent) for children.
After having worked part-time for De Praktijk, an office developing project-based science education material, Tessa has started a PhD project at ICLON (Leiden University) and TU Delft in November 2014.
Tessa’s PhD research topic focuses on integrating research and design in secondary science education. Therefore, the Dutch subjects O&O (research and design) and NLT (nature, life and technology) will be studied, both on teacher and on classroom level.
