Teachers, want to introduce your K-3 students to the wonders of microscopic animal adaptations? Consider scheduling an author book reading!
I begin my 20-minute presentation with a slideshow comparing light microscopes vs. scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), and I end with a reading of SMALL MATTERS plus some bonus fun-facts. I’m happy to stay 5-10 minutes longer to answer questions.
For now, this offer is for U.S. schools and K-3 classrooms only, on the Zoom platform (I'll need screen-sharing permission)—and the first presentation is complimentary.
In-Person Presentations (local to the San Francisco Bay Area):
I begin my 30-minute presentation with a slideshow comparing light microscopes vs. scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), move on to with a reading of SMALL MATTERS plus some bonus fun-facts, and end with an iridescence demonstration (time permitting). I’m happy to stay 5-10 minutes longer to answer questions.
This offer is for small K-3 classroom groups only (<30 students). A slide projector and the necessary connector (for a USB-C port) must be provided by the school.
Currently, I'm able to offer one complimentary presentation (as long as the school commits to providing families with a promotional flier about the book). Additional presentations can be arranged at a nominal fee of $50 each.

"Heather’s presentation to our kindergarten students was engaging, informative, and perfectly age-appropriate. She appealed to visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. Heather has a wonderful way of connecting with the students as she takes them through her book, Small Matters: The Hidden Power of the Unseen, which showcases many familiar animals. We all learned something new! Heather even came to the presentation in tow with a little goodie bag for each student that tied to her wonderful book. What a treat it was to have Heather at our school!"
