Kat is one-part teacher, one-part traveller, two-parts improvisor, three-parts artist and a big part bird watcher. Too many parts? Kat joined STEM Learning Lab with the belief that hands-on, experiential, and inquiry-based learning is a MUST for all students and STEM, STEAM, and design thinking provides the perfect opportunity for all learners to take the plunge. Her experience as a teacher, with degrees in International Relations and Education, has led her two most strongly believed convictions: Carol Dweck’s Growth Mindset philosophy is genius and failure is the greatest teacher of all. Whether working on a coding project with students, presenting at workshops, or performing improv, challenges are there to teach us, not defeat us.
