About Machinam

Our product tackles that age old question, ‘Why do we have to learn this?’ by framing maths problems in a way that allows all students’ to connect what they are learning in class to their own life and future careers. Why? Because although girls and boys sit side by side in classrooms all across the country, women are still much less likely to choose careers in STEM than men. One of the contributing factors to this inequality is that many traditional educational resources still appeal more to boys than girls. We want all students to understand the relevance of maths and have the opportunity to make informed choices about choosing their future career.

We are a mobile workforce that values diversity and creating a culture that embraces flexibility for all team members.
