Governments around the world place great importance on education in the sciences, engineering and mathematics. As both work and home life are increasingly affected by the latest developments in science and technology, it's important that young people are able to harness new opportunities and participate.
The Great Inventor Prerna invites you on her adventure around the world. Originally broadcast on 16th May 2020 as an interactive workshop, this online adventure is now available for viewing on demand below.
