Jay Mankita has worked with kids and families for over 30 years. His musical concerts are refreshingly positive and fun. His engineering workshops are experiential and inspiring.

Jay is a longtime musical activist in ecology, nutrition, and education. He has a strong passion for engineering and making things move, and teaches how he learns - with patience, humor, and lots of room for mistakes! 

When he's not singing or engineering, Jay is an award winning and masterful songwriter, guitarist, humorist, and performing artist - a seasoned veteran of the children’s circuit as well as the adult americana/folk scene.

He's a dad, a teaching artist, and a lifelong learner, and looks forward to bringing his work and play to your town!
