In this episode of Art and Science Punks Kate and Rob discuss our families recent adventure visiting a girls in engineering event and talk about the importance of creating awareness of the need for more women in STEM fields.
Kate and Rob also share an art pick and a science pick this week: one is about a medical pioneer, the other about how fun special markers and paper can be.
