A new book on the science of sustainability for kids will be published by the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2013. Kathleen's philosophy about design and education is founded on her studies at the Institute of Design, Illinois Institute of Technology, where experimental learning and creative approaches to problem solving were encouraged. These experiences refined her ideas about what is effective in childrens' educational materials. Her books and guides provide teachers and parents with a valuable learning tool that helps kids explore and absorb complex subjects while they enjoy themselves. Kathleen and her associates also provide new media and traditional design services including photography, illustration, and web site development.
