As a mathematician I never shy away from showing the value of mathematics to the general public.
However, it is rare for me to share the stage with other Black Scientist and Black Engineers.
Last Saturday, I took part in Black STEAM at the Mockingbird Theatre – the Custard Factory.
STEAM – stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. The talks took the format of TedX .
Victoria Kasamba represented Art and Engineering
Charlie English represented Engineering
Florence Okonye represented Technology
Moses Murandu represented Science
Yours truly represented Mathematics.
The quality, passionate and expertise of the other speakers was very inspiring. It was an honour to sit back and listen to them. If you hear of their names speaking at other events, I recommend you go and hear them speak.
The event was well planned to a military precision, well attended and executed with professional excellence.
