About Dr Marianne R Logan

Dr. Marianne R Logan BA(NE), GradDipEd(NE), PhD(SCU)
Marianne’s research has been influenced by life experiences. For over a decade Marianne was employed in Early Childhood settings and it was during this period she saw the significance of child centred education where children and young people’s voices are heard, and where they are encouraged to independently explore and investigate their environment. Marianne’s love of nature was fostered in her childhood and led to her undertaking a science-based degree majoring in biological, environmental, chemical sciences, and physical geography. Marianne is currently employed at Southern Cross University in the area of Early Childhood and Primary Science and Technology education and is a member of the Sustainability, Environment and Education (SEE) Research cluster. Marianne is passionate about inspiring learners in science, sustainability and the environment. Her Doctoral research involved looking at the changes in attitudes to, and interest in, science, of students in primary and secondary school. She has carried out research relating to school/university partnership programs in science and technology education and has been successful in obtaining small university grants for these endeavours. The findings of Marianne’s research have been presented at international and national conferences and published in International research journals and chapters in edited texts. Her keen interest in child framed research has led her involvement in a research project where young people work together in reducing marine debris in Byron Bay (a popular Australian tourist destination). Marianne, together with her colleague, Dr. Angela Turner, have recently been successful in receiving a small grant for a collaborative project with three primary schools. This project employs a cross-cultural food learning experience in the context of native Australian foods and climate change.
