Jennifer would be happy to speak at your conference,
teacher training session, library, or workshop.

Sharing her passion for science and technology is important to Jennifer:

Getting kids of all ages excited about science, technology, and engineering is what I DO. After all, science is ALL AROUND you, you are always a part of it. I encourage everyone to BE CURIOUS about why things happen, how they work, and then jump in and learn something.

Jennifer’s presentations are upbeat, exciting, and always very interactive. They inspire attendees to think about the world around them and how they fit into it. A huge supporter of girls/women in STEM, she is an active member of 500 Women Scientists and is happy to address how girls can follow their own passion for science and technology in today’s world.

I can't say enough about the great Highlights Foundation workshop I attended earlier this month. This video was actually filmed while I was there. Jennifer Swanson, Miranda Paul, Emily Feinberg, and Paige Hazzan inspired and informed us with a bit of laughter on the side.

I just attended the Nuts & Bolts of Science Writing workshop and it was even better the second time around! What a wonderful week! Special thanks to the faculty: Jennifer Swanson, Miranda Paul, Emily Feinberg, Paige Hazzan, and Clara Gillow Clark. They are absolutely awesome! I hope you offer the workshop again next year so that others can attend.

Miranda Paul and Jennifer Swanson I wanted to let you know that the Workshop Nuts and Bolts of Science Writing the two of you presented at Highlights Foundation was THE BEST WRITING WORKSHOP EVER !!!!!!!!!!
