GoldieBlox teamed up with the If/Then Initiative to bring you the YouTube series Fast Forward Girls. The show follows the journey of young women as they learn about the STEM in the real world by immersing themselves in it with the help of leading female innovators. In the Fast Forward Girls Spotlight, we take a moment to get to know those innovators a little bit better.
Dr. Saman Sizdahkhani is a neurosurgeon. She was featured as an innovator on Fast Forward Girls: Bailey Ballinger Finds Out How Brains Work, and showed Bailey how to perform a craniotomy, aka drill into a skull to expose the brain! Saman put the drills down to talk to us about what motivated her to study the brain.
