 STEM Workshops 

  • Robotics Fun! - In this workshop Michelle speaks briefly about their book, The Trouble with Robots, and the robotics seen within it. Participants then do a hands on activity to make a "bristlebot"; a small robot made using a toothbrush, battery, and motor. Participants modify and decorate their bristlebots, testing out methods to let it move smoothly across a table. By the end of the workshop, participants will learn about closing a circuit, friction, basic robotics terms, and more. 


  • Land On The Moon! - In this workshop, Michelle speaks briefly about their book The Problem With Gravity and how Maggie, one of the main characters, adores space exploration. Participants then take part in a challenge to design a "lander", using recycled materials to try and create a way to slow down a paper cup with 3D printed mini astronauts inside. Participants test their designs and adjust them, all while trying to make it so that their lander stops safely after a drop from a large height. By the end of the workshop, participants will learn about the design challenge, space exploration, and more.

Costs and Scheduling: 

  • Honorarium per day -

    • $250 per day, up to 3 presentations in a day + travel costs for non-local events.

    • For pre-recorded visits - $50 per recorded visit (this fee covers the initial recording as well as the follow up to answer further student questions).​​

    • For workshops, the honorarium covers the cost of supplies up to 50 participants.

  • For in-person visits: Michelle is willing to consider any number of days for a visit, but it will depend on timing. If they are already in an area for a book festival or event, then they'd be happy to visit local schools without the travel cost. Their presentations and workshops are about an hour long, with time for questions at the end and book signing time after the presentation. They can adjust the timing slightly to make them longer or shorter to match the needs of your organization.

  • Pre-recorded visits: Michelle offers pre-recorded visits for presentations only (not for workshops), where students send in their questions early and Michelle records themself answering them while also chatting about one of the topics listed above. After watching the video, teachers can then email me follow up questions from their students, and Michelle will send back a second recorded response.
