Laura Lynn Gonzalez
Primary Creator, Artist, Science Nerd, and Producer of Content. For over ten years, Gonzalez has been creating media for science education. She has developed products for diverse platforms - from planetarium dome shows to games for PCs, Macs, and mobile devices. Her experience spans scientific visualization, concept development, management of creative teams, and designing production pipelines.
Her biomedically-themed planetarium movies have been shown in science centers and other educational institutions across the US as well as internationally. These movies have reached wide audiences, inspiring them with the beauty of science.
In 2010, she was awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to pursue her work on Powers of Minus Ten. She continues to update content and platforms, and think of new ways to bring the microverse to you for less than a cup of coffee.*
