We’re extremely excited to have Cate Heiderscheidt join us at 1st Playable and the Playscope team as an Instructional Design Specialist. We asked her to write up a short blurb about herself to share:
Cate has spent the majority of her professional life studying the intersection of science, art, and education. She joined 1st Playable Productions because she is interested in making learning materials that boost confidence and empower the next generation of problem solvers. Cate has a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Illinois, an M.S. in Microbiology, Immunology, & Cancer Biology from the University of Minnesota, and an M.S. in Education from Northwestern University. She has experience teaching elementary, middle school, and college-level sciences. During her tenure as an educator, she also had the opportunity to design curricular materials for ELA, Mathematics, and Science that align with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.
