Katherina Tsikalaki

In December 2018, Katerina's contract as a science and math teacher in Skaramagas Refugee Accommodation Site outside Athens was ending and the program would not continue. Katerina was having a hard time adjusting to the idea that she would leave her beloved students. Then she met BH Fellow Erika Gillette for dinner who showed her the science kits she was developing right on the restaurant table. Using her experience from working at the Science Museum, Katerina used Erika’s science kits to teach her final lessons and gave her students something to remember. Katerina became Erika's co-Fellow and will be focusing this year on continuing teacher training in public schools and NGOs. She will also be launching the first online global Science Festival for students who have experienced interrupted education.
