On view at CenterPark Garden and level one between Nordstrom and Macy's. The exhibit #IfThenSheCan celebrates the contributions of more than 120 contemporary female STEM professionals and role models from a variety of industries including entertainment, fashion, sports, business, and academia.
From Jessica Esquivel, particle physicist, who is one of 150 Black women with a PhD in physics in the country, to Kay Savage, who uses math, coding, and mixed methods research to gain a deeper understanding of Spotify listening behavior, to Karina Popovich, who produced over 82,000 pieces of 3D-printed PPE for healthcare workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibit will truly amaze and inspire all.
#IfThenSheCan features interactive elements, including audio and video of each ambassador’s personal story. They participated in individual, full-body scans at Dallas’ Perot Museum of Nature and Science in October 2019. Using unique technology called the Twinstant Mobile Full Body 3D Scanner, each woman’s full-length silhouette was 3D printed into a life-sized statue.
