Description

Dallas Arboretum presents 50 of the statues from #IfThenSheCan - The Exhibit, the largest collection of statues of women ever assembled together, to be installed throughout the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden.

#IfThenSheCan – The Exhibit is the largest collection of statues of women ever assembled together. The orange life-size 3D-printed statues are of a diverse coalition of contemporary women STEM innovators and role models. As seen on and around the National Mall and Smithsonian museums earlier this year, this installation highlights how a more diverse and inclusive workforce will strengthen our shared future.

IF/THEN® is an initiative of the Lyda Hill Philanthropies designed to activate a culture shift among young girls to open their eyes to STEM careers. From protecting wildlife, discovering galaxies, fighting superbugs, to choreographing robots, 125 STEM innovators were selected through a rigorous process with a commitment to inspire the next generation. Lyda Hill Philanthropies partnered with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to select and manage the AAAS IF/THEN® Ambassadors program: engaging high-profile role models to inspire middle school girls.

This exhibit is made possible by Lyda Hill Philanthropies and the IF/THEN® initiative. Rooted in a firm belief that there is no better time to highlight positive and successful female professional role models, IF/THEN® seeks to further advance women in (STEM) by empowering current innovators and inspiring the next generation of pioneers.

Visitors can explore the eight-acre Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden where science and fun become one. Plenty of daily hands-on activities await children such as STEM Stops, science and plant labs and demonstrations.
