Erika Gillette (Greece)

Founder of STEM United Project

Erika Gillette is running an exciting program, STEM United Project, for refugee children in camps located in Greece that provides science experiments with practical outcomes – knowledge and take-home gadgets. With a Masters in Education from Columbia University, Erika specializes in working with students who have suffered trauma and has created a structured, differentiated and multi-sensory science curriculum, which allows all learners to be scientists. She brings years of experience in developing effective science-based hands-on kits that transcend language barriers for children in informal education settings. Her goal is to expand opportunities for STEM education for refugee children to inspire a future generation of scientists.  Location: Greece
