dc.descriptionMarita is an engineer and is dedicated to encouraging young women to consider a career in engineering. She founded Robogals Global in 2008, as a response to the low levels of participation by women in engineering and technology. Robogals uses fun and educational activities to teach schoolgirls about engineering and the difference that engineers make to our lives. She has a Nancy Fairfax Churchill Fellowship, an International Youth Foundation YouthActionNet Fellowship and an Anita Borg Change Agent Award.  A former panellist on ABC TV's New Inventors program, Marita plans to start a robotics company, creating robots that will take care of many everyday and mundane tasks.  Already, she has changed the way that girls view their capacity to contribute to engineering and technology.en
