Erika Gillette

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
