Texas Tech Engineering Professor Michelle Pantoya Writes Children’s Book on Engineering

Facebook

A Texas Tech engineering professor has written a children’s book on engineering.

Michelle Pantoya and her co-author Emily Hunt, now an engineering professor at West Texas A&M University and Texas Tech alumna, worked with early childhood literacy experts and science museums to develop their most recent title, “Designing Dandelions: An Engineering Everything Adventure.”

The book tells the story of two space aliens from the planet Exergy, who have crash-landed on earth and must apply the engineering design process to get themselves back home.

“I’m very excited to bring engineering to young children and start to inspire the future generations that will impact our world,” said Pantoya.

The purpose of the book is to teach children the relationship between science and engineering, and introduce them to science, technology, engineering, and math concepts. It was published by the Texas Tech University Press.
