Chris Ing is a scientist, creator and educator. He is also Action Potential Lab's resident DJ. We are so excited to have Chris as a guest instructor at camp.
We got to sit down with Chris and ask our favourite 4 questions
What is your favourite thing about working with kids?
Kids ask great questions about life, and I like to keep up with all the cool trends kids are into these days in order to stay young (like Pogs and marbles).
What do you love most about your work?
With DJ'ing, it's getting new ideas for dance moves from the crowd.
The thing I love most about science is getting to watch 3D movies of biology, and getting ideas for dance moves from those too.
What inspired you to get into your field?
I was sitting under a fruit tree when an apple fell off and hit my head. As I ate the apple, I thought, my head bump sure would feel a lot better if I was listening to some music. Now, here I am. My life goal is to DJ an apple pie eating contest for the injured.
Who is your favourite artist? Your favourite scientist?
Fave artist is Dalí, fave scientist is Richard Feynman
