I love teaching, speaking, writing and being part of the conversation on what works in education. Following is a brief bio ---
Heidi Olinger is an award-winning educator, writer and speaker who lives in Colorado. For teaching excellence, she has been honored by the Boettcher Foundation and others. In 2013 she published Fashionably Mashed: The STEM of Fashion Design, an activity book for students + educators. She is the founder + CEO of Pretty Brainy, creator of educational materials to support teachers in exciting students about learning and in preparing them, especially girls, to pursue the broadest of career options. Heidi’s work in STEM-inspired clothing design for girls has won the highest honor from the Mom’s Choice Awards and in 2012 was featured in an international showcase by the World Trade Center-Denver. For Heidi's work, InnovatioNews has named Pretty Brainy “An educational leader for STEM education.”
