Hi all,

We're so excited to find this thread and hear about the interest in
resources for kids! I'm part of a start-up company in Seattle, WA that's
been funded by the National Science Foundation to develop a digital STEAM
tool that uses student's hand-drawn illustrations as interactive science
lessons. The foundation of what we're building is rooted in teaching kids
to "see and draw like scientists" and be scientific illustrators. We'd love
to speak with anyone who may be interested in collaborating!

Our team started after we all completed the Certificate Program in Natural
Science Illustration at the University of Washington. We're all scientific
illustrators who love collaborating and supporting programs that connect
kids to science. If you're curious, here's a demo video

Classroom. We hope to hear from you!

Best,
Jen
