Getting girls into tech

My highlight from the beginning of 2015 has been running the Superheroes STEAM-ahead event, for which I raised $3000 using crowdfunding, attracted more than 300 school girls and their mums, and organised a successful career fair with 10 NZ companies and organisations. It was a huge undertaking but thanks to the STEAM-ahead team everything run smoothly, and the feedback from attendees was fantastic. I was invited to a blog post on the widely-read Public Address page about why I decided to run this event, and was surprised to receive a thank you letter from the Minister of Women's Affairs. Doing this in parallel with running Entopix and looking after my 2 year old daughter would not have been possible without the support of my mother.
