What I do
Helen worked on the Digital Education Programme.
She managed grant awardees for the Digital Makers fund, a programme to encourage and enable young people to create rather than simply consume technology, including non-financial support to help scale their projects and get more young people digital making. She also helped to deliver the overarching Make Things Do Stuff campaign launched by Nesta, Mozilla and Nominet Trust.
Helen has a background in IT, media and project management and is a qualified makeup artist in her spare time. She has a particular interest in new technologies, conservation and how the two can be used for education.
