Straight out of high school or A-levels, you have a favourite science subject,sport or maths but you are unaware of what next. Don’t worry, you will be slightly taken care of here. Not to undermine the important roles of medics and engineers but STEM offers a wider world of possibilities that most students will unfortunately never discover. So I hope you get inspired or are left at least half as intrigued as I am.

This blog will cover career possibilities in STEM, healthcare in sub-Saharan Africa and new scientific discoveries that tug at my heart. As for new science, I will attempt to cast my net wide into the physical sciences though it may still appear biological science heavy.

If you are generally curious what happens behind white coats and fancy laboratories or you just fancy a geeky read, consider this is your free curiosity fix.

She honestly prefers to write and advocate for science rather than being in a lab coat. When Nduta is not trying to find her way in science, she will be found performing and teaching violin and oboe.
