Meet the Team

Who were the founders of this project?


Rafaela Pires

Hello students,

First of all, thank you for visiting our page! You are all very welcome here. My name is Rafaela Pires, and I am one of the founders of this initiative alongside Mariano - we are freshman high school students of the British School of Rio de Janeiro. I have always been an avid learner of science, although I have undergone many difficulties when studying the subject at school. Therefore, I created this project alongside my friend with the purpose of connecting students from our community and beyond to share the understanding and enjoyment of humanity’s world of knowledge. As top students, in this page we propagate the 3 key ideas which we believe work the best while studying - admiration, understanding and freedom. The admiration that will keep you going, the freedom of learning new things and the understanding that you are always learning. With all this in mind, we truly hope that our page helps with your studies as well as helps you develop a likeness for science if you haven't yet. Make good use of The Science Page, and always remember to be skeptical! 

Here's my personal email in case you need it:

Mariano Pucciarelli

Hello everyone!

My name is Mariano Pucciarelli and alongside one of my friends and with the valuable help of the Science Department we've had the initiative to create this new, safe and helpful science website to support all KS3 students. We will be offering tutoring, videos explaining content, revision guides, and much more! Outside of school, I'm extremely passionate about football and music. And when I'm not doing anything football or music-related you'll probably find me playing with my dog, facetiming people for way too long or just enjoying life. I'm extremely excited about this project and what it may become, if you have any doubts don't hesitate to contact me at


Matilde Leandro

Hi guys! 


My name is Matilde Leandro; I am currently a GCSE/KS4 student at Francis Holland school, London. From a young age, science has always engrossed me; therefore, after understanding the purpose of this initiative, I was instantly intrigued to help out, as I always encountered difficulties trying to find thorough online sources for my work. I am super rhapsodic to join this formidable initiative alongside Rafaela and Mariano and can’t wait to share my infatuation for science!
