Tamara Robertson is an accomplished engineer and superhero scientist. Prior to joining the mainstream maker movement, Tamara spent a decade in Corporate Engineering during which she was pivotal in creating Women in Leadership mentorship programs. During this time she noted a lack of women walking through the doors so she transitioned full time to outreach in hopes of inspiring more young women to pursue S.T.E.M. Careers. She has become one of the leading Female Science Hosts and Engineers on the Science Channel lending her talents to Scijinks with Johnny Galecki, Mythbusters 2.0 with Brian Louden and Jon Lung and most recently on Mythbusters Jr. with Adam Savage. In her spare time she travels the nation teaching “Superhero Science” and is the co-founder of the S.T.E.M. outreach comic “Seekers of Science”.
