EDUCATOR TESTIMONIAL I had requested a speaker in the field of science and media...what a surprise to get Ann Merchant. She was phenomenal. One moment among many that stand out was when all of my students raised their hands immediately when she asked if they had seen one of the films she consulted on. They were at the edge of their seats and engaged the entire flashchat. MS. JENNIFER HUNT SEDGWICK MIDDLE SCHOOL WEST HARTFORD, CT CHAT W/ ANN MERCHANT 2019 | DREAMWAKERS


EDUCATOR TESTIMONIAL Many of our students are in a computer science club through Google. Our experience with Blair allowed our students to see possibilities in the area of computer science. The biggest discussions we had were about always learning and growing. Blair started as a teacher and then ended up working at the Facebook campus. We also discussed setting short and long term goals for ourselves. We had great conversations and the students related well to what Blair said to them. It was a wonderful flashchat. MS. SHELBY EVANS KILLBUCK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL KILLBUCK, OHIO CHAT W/ BLAIR ROBERTSON 2019 | DREAMWAKERS


SPEAKER TESTIMONIAL I learned that the skills the kids are practicing and building are imperative for a successful career and life; skills like: goal planning, time management, self care, team work, discipline, and humor. BRIANNA MCGOWAN CHAT W/ LISA REYNOLDS KENTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, INDEPENDENCE, KY

FLASHCHAT HIGHLIGHTS Student Q: How did you get involved with helping women in Engineering? The most amazing thing about Society for Women Engineers (SWE) is that it is a community of women that are there to support you. So, I know sometimes as a women or as a minority in STEM you will walk into a room of people that are not like you. In that situation you have to know that there are thousands of people behind you that have your back. In SWE we have about 40,000 women that have your back and we are all rooting for you in STEM. ESTER BARBUTO CHAT W/ MS. JUSTEAN PALMER CANYON RIDGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SURPRISE, ARIZONA 2019 | DREAMWAKERS


FLASHCHAT HIGHLIGHTS Student Q: Do you think you’ve had more difficulty in your career choice because you’re a woman? Sometimes it doesn’t make it easy, sometimes as women, our jobs are a little more complicated because historically speaking we’re in an industry that was primarily male-dominated. But through the years, it’s gotten a lot better. Women are a lot more present in different parts of our society and doing different things so it’s definitely gotten a lot better. And the respect for women and what they bring is incredible. Nothing in this world can be done without women. BALANDA ATIS CHAT W/ MS. SARAH MEDUKAS SCOTT COUNTY SCHOOLS GATE CITY, VIRGINIA 2019 | DREAMWAKERS
