At Fundi Bots, we’re always looking for opportunities to inspire the next generation of scientists and innovators. To achieve that, we’ve created a “Fundi Inspiration” event line up at which we’ll host experts and professionals in different fields of science.

One of the areas we’re passionate about is Space and Rocket Science and we are therefore, extremely excited to announce that we’ll be hosting Kendra Toole, an aerospace engineer who has worked with SpaceX and Orbital ATK building, testing and launching rockets that brought supplies to the astronauts on the International Space Station.

She will be sharing about:

  1. Space Missions and Robotics.
  2. How to set complex goals and work towards them.
