Library Furniture, Airport Furniture, University Furniture | Agati Furniture Every Child a Reader – Dedicated to inspiring a love of reading in children and teens across America About Us — The Exploratory Jean Kaneko is sought after program/curriculum developer and speaker in the world of STEAM education and Making. An early adopter of making as an engagement strategy, she has been teaching STEAM subjects in formal and informal education programs such as after school, in-class, camps to both children and educators since 2011.

Aaron is a Santa Monica, CA based artist and designer, who earned his MFA in Ceramics/Drawing from UCLA as a recipient of a full scholarship from Edward J and Alice Mae Smith fund and a BFA in Ceramics and Art History from Alfred University.
