Engage yourself in the workshop recording to be inspired by this highly creative person. Michelle's lifelong research has brought about this inspirational workshop.
Deep-dive into teaching and educating today's brighter than ever kids for future readiness.
Michelle's STEAM book, Creative Children Like the Animals of the World and her Raising Creative Thinkers Guidebook are based on her teaching at the Dr. Erica Landau Institute for the Advancement of Youth to Excellence and Creativity in Tel-Aviv.
Scientifically, Michelle's materials are based on conversations with Dr. Moshe Rishpon, who established the Clore Garden of Science and the Science Oriented Youth Department in the Weizmann Institute. This is a pioneer program in science education and a leader of that field worldwide.
Michelle believes that all children need and deserve the kind of education gifted students experienced in those institutes for the past 40-50 years. Alumni of the courses in those two establishments became leaders of their fields of expertise in Israel and globally. They said
it all began at those courses, where they were given the opportunity to explore, experience
and express. Curiosity to develop projects was ignited. Overwhelming emotions and behaviors were balanced. And social-emotional skills were nurtured to bring success.
"Excellent, well planned, good details."
"She is a very special creative leader."
