Virtual Author Visits

I use Author Visits as a wonderful way to exemplify real life examples of what it means to be diverse in STEM. Students are able to pick the brain of an engineer/author/tech professional who has experience working on their favorite apps, such as Instagram. Together, we can read Girls Can Be Engineers, learn what it means to be an engineer, and learn how students can become an engineer too!


Please note: Virtual Author Visits are through Google Meets unless your school is able to provide a video chat link.

Also, program offerings by grade level can be customized by request.

Pricing:

$100 for 45 minutes

About the Author

Jamila H. Lindo was born in Jamaica and grew up in both London and New York City. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering with minors in Environmental Engineering and Religious Studies, with concentration in Holocaust Education, from Manhattan College. In addition, she holds a Master of Science from Columbia University in Construction Administration.


As a young professional, Jamila has found herself as the only woman of color in what at first seemed to be unimaginable spaces: from being an engineer in one of the largest transportation projects in the United States to being a problem solver at the top technology companies in the world. She wants to remind children that all things are possible.


Jamila has a passion for volunteering and encouraging young girls, especially those of color, to explore STEM fields.

bonus: students & teachers get free posters!

"It’d be really cool to see women in STEM careers on posters in the hall, in our history and science texts, and visit our classes,"" stated an 8th Grade student in a recent Microsoft and KRC Research.

We've created sets of posters to celebrate diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and they are finally available.
