STEM WOW - STEM Woman of the WeekTelling the stories of African women rocking it in STEM
STEM WOW is a project by Nsesa Foundation to tell the stories of young inspirational African women on the continent and in the diaspora who are rocking it in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Between January and June 2018, we will share the stories of such women with 2.5 million people across the world on our website and social media pages.
We hope to inspire the next generation of female African Innovators, Scientists, Engineers and STEM educators with these powerful stories.
