Meet our instructors!
Jason Moeller (He/Him/His)
Hi! My name is Jason, and I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri. I first found my passion for teaching science there, as a summer camp counselor at the St. Louis Zoo. I graduated from Indiana University (go Hoosiers!) in 2009, and stayed an extra year to earn my teaching credential. I worked as the School Programs Coordinator at Zoo Knoxville from 2010 to 2016, where one of my main responsibilities was teaching their homeschool program. After my wife and I moved to Nashville in 2016, I joined Adventure Science Center. I started the Homeschool Science Enrichment Program here in 2017. The thing I love the most about the Science Center is the wide range of different sciences I get to teach! My favorites are herpetology, sports science, flight, and oceanography. I can’t wait to see where this semester takes us!
Kayla Bagley (She/Her/Hers)
Hello! My name is Kayla, and I recently moved to Nashville from Ocean City, Maryland, to join the learning and outreach family here at Adventure Science Center! I just graduated from Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey, with my Bachelor of Science in Geology. I am also the first woman at my school to complete a concentration in paleontology. Throughout college, I assisted with paleo-biomechanics research, which integrated engineering systems with traditional paleontology to better understand how dinosaurs may have moved. I have also done paleontological excavations in New Jersey and Montana. I have found joy in teaching science when I was in high school and would travel to different schools to teach them about dinosaurs. In addition to dinosaurs, I also enjoy teaching and learning about biology, ecology, chemistry, and forensics. I am excited to continue to learn with all of you!
