Women in STEM in Africa:
A Webinar Presentation by
STEM DRC Initiative Founder

Dr. Sadrine Mubenga, Ph.D, PE presents at Webinar, Women in STEM in Africa regarding work done by the STEM DRC Initiative to support the DRC in the time of COVID-19. The country did not have enough ventilators, and could not build the usual ventilator designs due to parts not being available in the DRC. She and some students attending college on scholarships funded by the STEM DRC Initiative, as well as some professional colleagues and Professors at the University of Loyola in the DRC worked together to design a prototype ventilator that can be manufactered in the DRC from readily available parts. She begins her presentation at about 16 minutes on the time code.
