Hi Bidushi!

Great to have here. A start-up in space tech sounds unique and interesting!

1) What are the trends you see in space technology education that gets you excited and how does Singapore compare to what you have seen in the west?

2) What kind of projects do you envision to engage the students here in Singapore?

3) Can you also share a bit on your experiences working for NASA and overall thoughts on women in STEM?
