Kate is one of three HOPE for the Future Learning Officers responsible for bringing the HOPE collection to a diverse audience of young people and teachers. The team will develop and deliver an ambitious programme of public engagement activities both in and out of school. The programme aims to nurture and enthuse children’s interest and curiosity about natural sciences generally and British insects in particular.
Kate has many years’ experience as a Primary School teacher with a particular interest in teaching Science. Her training as a Forest School Leader also allows her to indulge her passion for natural history. Kate was involved in delivering the Insect Investigator’s Summer School which was part of the pilot project for HOPE for the Future. She has a BA in Social and Biological Anthropology from Durham University and an MA in the Anthropology of Art from the University of East Anglia.
