NPR: “The Courage To Invent”
Animator/illustrator Daniela Sherer, whose stripped down style worked so well in the this ACLU film addressing the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, tackles another important social issue in new work for NPR.
Daniela Sherer: “Growing up, Ayanna Howard was obsessed with creating robots. She earned her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and by the time she was 27 she landed her dream job at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
“[In this film] Howard describes an experience early on in her career at JPL and how courage is a necessary part of the invention process.”
