The Experience Daliona Team

Alex Martin

Founder, Program Manager

"To all our endeavors."

Alex's journey began on June 12, 2004, at age 11, when he started writing science-fiction books. At 20, he wrote the first book in his current series, not knowing it would later lead him to create Experience Daliona five years later. In April 2018, he began making educational videos for YouTube, in which he interviewed passerby on the street about various scientific concepts. In June 2018, he traveled to Finland and spoke at the 5th European Conference for Conservation Biology, highlighting how he uses science-fiction as a gateway for readers to develop an interest in science.


On July 11, 2018, just two weeks after returning from Finland, he formally founded the first Sidewalk Science Center. Since then, he has finished writing the fourth book in the series, moved to Florida, and has had the opportunity to bring Sidewalk Science Center to more than a dozen communities up and down the east coast, and as far west as Denver, Colorado!
