• Our journey to STEAM

    In the past few years, as part of my chosen life purpose — to enable others — I have been working at Girls Invent Tomorrow which aims to create future female STEAM leaders. When we started this non-profit entity, we were driven by the urge to have a more balanced representation and influence in Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics in the workplace.

  • Dr Carolina Odman-Govender, is a Swiss-trained engineer turned astrophysicist and Professor of Astrophysics at the University of the Western Cape. Dr Odman grew up in Switzerland, and it was here where she was inspired by her high school physics teacher and decided to pursue a career in the sciences.
