In Detail

While on academic exchange at Imperial College London, Marita expanded the group to London and through innovation and sheer will, Marita then expanded Robogals throughout Australia, the UK, the USA and Japan. The group runs robotics workshops, career talks and various other community activities to introduce young women to engineering.


Marita speaks about her work in robotics and AI and how those industries will impact the future of work, specific robots she has built and the creative process her team uses to dream up and build new robots, inspire crowds about her story of growing up in a migrant family in Cairns and how she came to where she is today, how she built Robogals into a global movement, or even just speaking about careers in engineering and why it is a career path that all young students should consider!
