    26. Physics Educator on YouTube, System Engineer Consulting, Working at a Nuclear Fusion Reactor | Rebecca Fitch

    26. Physics Educator on YouTube, System Engineer Consulting, Working at a Nuclear Fusion Reactor | Rebecca Fitch

    Hey to all you cool listeners! In this episode, I bring to you Rebecca Fitch, aka Bexy, a YouTuber who is using her channel to educate viewers about the world of Physics. Her whole goal is to take Physics and STEM learning topics that some would find daunting and explain them in a way that is easy to digest and understand.  This hour-long conversation started with getting to know Bexy and understanding how she ended up majoring in physics. She has an incredible story explaining how she switched from a business track to physics. She put in a lot of hard work to make that switch even work, and I think most people would have given up if put in that position. This transitions into more learning/teaching topics: the teaching environment nowadays, the daunting nature of majoring in STEM, learning about the schooling system across the pond, etc. We then discuss what Bexy does in the industry. She is a System Engineer Consultant, and she explains what is system engineering, and what does it entail for someone with a Physics degree. Additionally, because I can't help it, I asked about what type of projects she has consulted on, and what were her favorites. That lead to us discussing her over year-long work on a Nuclear Fusion Reactor! Wow!We discussed so much more during this chat, and I am looking forward to everyone listening to the episode because you'll get a lot of value out of it. Find Bexy here:Instagram: @ScienceWithBexy YouTube Channel: Science With Bexy--more--Follow/Support The Podcast:Website: thatscoolnews.com/Rate The Podcast: thatscoolnews.com/reviewJoin the Community: thatscoolnews.com/communityInstagram: @ThatsCoolNewsEmail for giveaway: adam@thatscoolnews.com or thatscoolnews@gmail.comListen to the news episodes by going to thatscoolnews.com/newsAnd check out Interview episodes by going to thatscoolnews.com/interviewsRecording Equipment:Below is the equipment I use to record the podcast, I should note, as an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.Microphone: RE320Audio Interface: Scarlett 2i2Mic Stand: NEEWER Adjustable Microphone StandShock Mount: Koolertron Universal Shock Mount

Keeping Science and Tech Cool

Do you feel like you don’t have time to read all the articles on the latest science and tech news? Then take a listen if you want to stay up to date on the new highlights and interesting tidbits in the scientific and tech communities!

G_Suarez ,

Informative & fun science news for the masses!

If you've been looking for a place to hear current and popular science news that is easily explained and digestible for non-PhD types, look no further. Adam the host does an excellent job in translating "cool" science stories for the general public through a high quality produced program. Even my teenage daughter found the recent show (ep. 26) with Physics educator Bexy Fitch enjoyable, and my daughter HATES anything old dad recommends she listen to or read.

Informative and Great Quality

Adam makes learning about science and tech news fun and interesting. Instead of deciphering long articles on your own, listen to this podcast to learn about lots of cool tech innovations in an efficient and fun manner 🤩 Also the audio quality of the podcast is crisp and clear so you can focus on the podcast content instead of background noise!
