About Me

Lamiaa Mamdouh Mohamed Nail

I believe that every child deserves a chance of quality learning. Thus, I combined both my passion for engineering and education, to help the next generation of makers and creators to realize theirpotential and dreams through STEM education and education technology.

I'm a Co-founder and School Program Manager at the Egyptian Science Week (ESW), a nation wide initiative that aims at increasing the public interest of science, technology and innovation. The event is held in March of every year, with different activities all around Egypt. Formerly, I held the position of Science Communication Specialist at Department of Physics at the American University in Cairo (AUC). Prior to working at AUC, I have been the Education Team Leader of Tahrir Academy (www.tahriracademy.org), an online learning platform that creates mind-stimulating learning experiences for more than 150,000 learners. I also worked as a Research & Development Engineer in the industry, before shifting into Education & Science Communication.

I'm currently pursuing a master’s degree in Education at AUC and I hold a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from Faculty of Engineering, Cairo University.



I'm building the Robo-Pianist! - A robotic hand which plays the piano. I love music, and it is an interesting challenge to create a machine that can replicate a unique human talent like playing the piano.
