Frankie Ellwood completed the IB program at Zurich International School before studying a Biochemistry BSc at the University of Bristol. As part of her research project, she engaged local school students in authentic biochemical research techniques. This experience ignited her passion for teaching and inspired her to complete her teacher training at the University of West of England. Before joining Pinewood she taught female refugees in Athens, refugees in a Samos community center, and the IB curriculum at the International School of Budapest. She is dedicated to science communication and aims to engage students not only in science but also in local grassroots humanitarian efforts.
