The "first" of its kind, this STEM doll was designed based off the looks of the main character in their children's storybook, "Somi, The Computer Scientist: Princess Can Code"."It takes much dedication and commitment to a vision to see it through from conception to reality. The process was challenging at times, but knowing that I am creating something that can positively impact many lives was rewarding and humbling."
Says Bukola Somide.
Through Innovant Technologies LLC (https://www.innovant-tech.com/

She has also published a Computer Science Activity Book for boys and for girls.
