Gail Wheatley, Executive Director

Gail has a passion for fun and informal education and a great deal of experience in informal learning institutions and science education. She brainstorms ideas with Eric, establishes partnerships with scientists, surgeons and people and corporations that do interesting things. Gail writes the grants and the storyboards for the activities, manages the projects overall, crunches lots of numbers and does the long term planning for Edheads. She's always on the lookout for great new ideas and people who have them. She lives with two monster Westies (no, that is not an oxymoron) whose current science experiment is determining how many times they can dig up an apple tree before killing it.
Jen has worked in the informal science education field for 20 years, including many years working with Gail.
