My Books

My books cast the reader as the main character in a science-filled world, making science personal and valuable to children at a young age. I enjoy writing for all learners.

ICT4me™ encourages all youth to consider careers in computing. I created this curriculum with SRI International and Girls Inc. with funding from the National Science Foundation. This award-winning program has reached thousands of youth. The ICT4me curriculum is available to you and your youth.



I work with publishers, policymakers, youth development organizations, educators, and a host of other for-profits and non-profits to develop innovative learning environments for youth. Recently, my work has focused on encouraging girls, women, African Americans, and Latinos/as in engineering and computer science learning and careers.
