Hi! I’m Kisha Bradley - Chief Tinkerer at Bright Box Makerspace.

My journey started 20 years ago, when I had my mind blown. A lady in a white lab coat dipped a balloon in a massive vat of liquid nitrogen. She then tapped the balloon with a ruler and I watched it shatter into a million pieces. It was little moments like this that kept me engaged with science, and later maths, engineering and technology.

This is why I created Bright Box. There’s no greater joy than seeing young girls have an ‘aha’ moment when creating their own inventions.

We're on a mission to get more socially excluded kids to see that science, technology, engineering and maths can be fun and creative. Afterall, they're going to be the ones making inventions of the future.
