About Pam Metivier
She has a very successful marketing company, and reinvented herself to create a new venture... a children's book that tells the story of five amazing girls who use science, technology, engineering, art, and math to do amazing things - SteamTeam 5. But this is much more than just a book. It’s the beginning of a movement to attract girls to careers in STEM/STEAM.
She also started a kickstarter to fund the development of a book… and CRUSHED IT! And subsequently got invited to the United Nations to talk about girls/women in STEM/STEAM.
