Our very first guest has been recognized for effectively more than two decades, Julie Payette. She very first gained reputation in 1999 as the second female Canadian in space and was a member of a second mission to space in 2009.  She produced headlines once again in 2017 when she was installed as our Governor Common. We speak about her journeys more than this time and how science, technologies, engineering, and mathematics, recognized as STEM, has played a considerable part all through her life. She also gives her assistance to these who really feel that STEM is for them and why experimenting is a required component of life.
