Katie is an electronics engineer and mother of two. She got interested in electronics from her brother's robot magazines (which he had little interest in), and went on to study Electronics and Programming at A-level and university. Since leaving university, she has worked in the industry doing design, fault finding and repair, and compliance and testing.
In her spare time she enjoys doing a variety of crafts, especially sewing, and frequently makes her own clothes and bags.
Katie volunteers as a STEM ambassador and runs a Code Club at a local primary school, teaching 9 to 11 year olds to code and do basic electronics. She also helps out at local events, such as Cornwall Tech Jams, meant for anyone interested in learning more about programming and electronics, and TECgirls, which run events in the local area where girls can explore coding, robotics, games, and digital making in a welcoming and supportive environment. TECgirls also produces a quarterly magazine for girls age 6 through 12 to download, full of inspiration and activities.
