New Features on Scistrut.com

New year = new features on the blog! This year, focus on being the best version of yourself. Instead of sticking to only a general positive New Year’s resolution, encourage yourself to constantly try your best. Do something everyday to inspire yourself and help someone do the same. I’ve compiled a list of the most cutting-edge and competitive STEM summer programs across the country so you can turn your passion into action. I am so excited for you to release your full potential and see what amazing contributions you can make to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Get ready to make 2016 your most productive, innovative, and exciting year yet! Continue to reach out via social media or in the comments section for advice. It is so exciting to connect with you!

“We want to see more women as the face of science.” – Norah O’Donnell, co-host of CBS this morning. 

L’Oreal continues to strive to break the gender barrier facing STEM today. Only 26% of individuals in STEM are women. The L’Oreal fellowship program is in its 12th year and focuses not only on rewarding women conducting innovative, cutting-edge research, but also aims to inspire the next generation of female scientists through outreach opportunities. I am beyond honored to have attended last night’s inspiring ceremony. I was able to reunite with the friendly faces I met last year as well as meet the new fellows and attendees. One of the 2015 fellows, Sarah Ballard, hosts an empowering podcast ( which I could not stop listening to on the train!) for women in STEM! I will be interviewing Sarah for scistrut.com, so stay tuned! For now, check out the 2015 video on the L’Oreal USA website! 

I loved wearing the Rebecca Minkoff Collins dress from the fall 2015 runway; a true representation of scistrut.com! 

Thanks for reading
