While leading a group of female postdocs through tools to deal with problems unique to female scientists, Dr. Mom was driven to address the inequality problem from its root - the imbalance in the way we treat girls and boys in science. The "aha moment" came when exploring educational material with her own children, where she saw the lack of female role models presented to them. After much research into role models, educational methods, and lots of work with a great team, StellarNova began to create products to fill this need.
StellarNova's mission is to provide children with gender-balanced tools to enjoy and explore with engaging, age-appropriate, and interactive STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) products.
