Katherine Mengardon is an education innovator and writer with 20 years of experience in developing online innovative education programs and resources. She is the author of the three Little Inventors non-fiction children’s books published by HarperCollins.
I have been developing educational programs for the past 20 years, working on innovative online resources that bring a real-life element to the classroom. I have worked on groundbreaking innovative classroom resources for the BBC, Google, Cartoon Network, GSK, NatWest, Little Inventors, Pearson, Nesta, and for the past 4 years, I was also Chief Educator at Little Inventors. My aim is to open children’s eyes and minds to a new fun way of learning and give them the tools to prepare for a bright future.
What are you planning next?
I’m writing another Children’s activity book for Alexandra Palace in the UK, about enjoying parks – all about play and caring for nature and the environment. It’s called Wild in the Park and should be out later this year. I’m also collaborating with 12-year-old Anaya Hamid in New Jersey, she is an amazing illustrator with a strong style and talent. We are creating a book for early readers called the Cat of nine names about a stray cat that visits 9 different homes and has a different identity in each. I found Anaya when she entered the JK Rowling Ickabog competition on Twitter. I was so sure she would win and I was so gutted when she didn’t (still don’t know why!), that I offered to do a project with her.
