Our Team

Pranati Bagchi, Founder

Hi, I am a mathematics teacher with many years of global teaching experience across the United States, Singapore and India. I have a Master of Education (Ed.M) degree from Rutgers University, USA and a Masters degree (M.Sc) in Mathematics from India. I am also a STEM certified teacher from National Institute of STEM Education (NISE), USA.

I find STEM fascinating and have a deep appreciation for its potential to create an impact in the world. I firmly believe that we need to equip our children with the innovative capacity that will help them make technological advances in the future.

 

As a teacher, I have become increasingly disheartened to see young girls lose interest in STEM as they grow up. They find STEM subjects boring and tedious. This is why The Lavender Spaceship Project came into existence, a social enterprise aimed at improving gender equality in STEM. 

 

Through this platform, I want to give every young girl a chance to learn and practice STEM in a risk-free and friendly environment. My goal is to help them find their love for STEM and give them the confidence to pursue it further.

Alixe Tsang-Leclercq, Strategic advisor

Alixe is an economist who has been associated with the European commission in Brussels and prestigious MNCs in Asia.  She holds a Master’s degree in Economics from Hong Kong University and a Bachelor’s degree from Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management.

Alixe wanted to apply her experience for social impact. The gender gap in STEM and the difference in readiness of boys and girls in 21st century skills is particularly close to her heart. After noticing the existing differences in tech-related fields and realizing how this gap may widen in the future economy, Alixe came on board with The Lavender Spaceship Project (TLSP). She is passionate about fostering problem-solving mindset and grit in girls. Alixe believes in TLSP’s vision and its philosophy to prepare future ready girls.
