Shalini Guleria has a degree in chemical and biological engineering and masters in tissue engineering from the University of Waikato. Shalini has been the National Runners up for Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka Awards and has been known as a science and engineering communicator. The Science Box program was developed by Shalini to bring back the magic of science to young kiwis by teaching them first principle science concepts by using only house hold items. She aims to encourage innovation and problem solving through her workshops, providing the kids with a spark to further explore the areas of science and engineering.
Joseph Morcom is studying a Bachelor of Design degree majoring in interface design. After having met Shalini (founder) through the Waikato chapter for the Golden Key International Honour Society, he opted to come on board the Science Box team hoping to use his skills in design to help promote Science Box to the world.
Science box is a project aimed at sparking an interest in science in kids at a young age. Founded by Shalini Guleria in 2018, it is ever expanding and looking for volunteers. Science Box currently focuses it's work in the Waikato region of New Zealand, and hopes to grow this reach to a global level one day.
