Ella the Engineer
Ella the Engineer is an exciting educational resource for children to use with friends, with fun, interactive options for each book. Ella’s adventures can be brought to life, with each child choosing a character and acting out their role. Or children can simply view the virtual story-time readings from Deloitte leaders.
Each comic book also comes with interactive at-home toolkits that include new vocabulary words, materials for engaging in discussions about STEM for girls and mentorship opportunities, and other activities like crossword puzzles.
