Our Team

Billy Roden

Billy joined the Science Adventure Lab team in early 2013. He has a lighthearted personality and often provides comic relief onboard the Science Adventure Lab - he has been known to make nose clips magically appear from a student’s ear and to transform into the Incredible Hulk to demonstrate muscle contractions. Billy’s other responsibilities include materials and equipment preparation for our school visits, serving as a lead instructor on the Science Adventure Lab, and developing curriculum such as our new neuroscience module.


Billy earned his Bachelor’s degrees in Biology and Psychology from St. Louis University while working as a research assistant. Billy then moved to Seattle and joined Seattle Children’s Research Institute where he spent four years investigating pediatric epilepsy before joining the Science Adventure Lab. This unique partnership has given him the opportunity to combine his research background with community outreach and STEM awareness, drawing upon previous experiences as a camp counselor and math tutor.


When Billy is not at work you will find him exploring parks and museums, playing music, or going on wilderness adventures.
