Thomas Walsh and Yolanda Mangrum-Walsh, D.D.S. Owners & Directors
Tom is the Program Director of Engineering® for Kids North Bay. In a previous life before becoming an attorney, Thomas was a program manager, training manager and eventually Director at Space Camp® California. He has had a life long passion for learning and providing hands-on educational opportunities for children. He grew up around aircraft his entire childhood and spent his days building model aircraft, rockets and anything else that could GO! That led to a fascination with America's space program and to a life long love of all things engineering. Yolanda is the Marketing Director of Engineering® for Kids North Bay. As a dentist, Yolanda spent her time in undergraduate studies immersed in science before attending and graduating from dental school. While a practicing dentist, Yolanda was also faculty at the UC San Francisco and University of the Pacific dental schools. In her private practice, she offers community outreach programs that provides dentistry to under served children as well as health and nutrition education for parents and children. We have two boys, a 9 and a 7 year old, both of whom spend more time with boxes and sticks, markers and tape, creating amazing contraptions than they do with any of their store bought toys. Our goal is to help foster that innate desire to imagine, design, create and build. At the same time, we think it is important to provide children the opportunity to learn life skills such as collaboration, problem solving, perseverance and a positive, can-do attitude. We have a strong conviction in lifelong learning and education and hope that through the Engineering for Kids® curriculum, we can provide children the tools to go with their curiosity and become lifelong learners.
