When I go to in person events to talk about 3D printing, sure I get asked about the 3D printer I use, but surprisingly, the more common question I get asked is what all of the 3D printed objects are made from.

Sci Chic’s journey of expanding and pivoting in the world of entrepreneurship
Passing the one year mark as an entrepreneur is a big milestone, but also makes you do some reflecting. I started my company Sci Chic back in October 2015 during my 4th year as a mechanical engineering student at the University of Florida. Inspired by my experiences at outreach events, my goal with founding Sci Chic was creating a tangible connection to STEM topics, sparking everyday conversations about science, and encouraging young girls in science and engineering. Over the past year we have done this by creating science and engineering inspired jewelry using 3D printing and pairing it with educational materials.
One woman’s international STEM journey to empower melanin genius
Ruth Agbaji is the founder of an online community for black millennial women in STEM and although her journey started in a different area of study and a different continent, her whole career has been leading up to this.
Growing up in Nigeria, Ruth Agbaji was surrounded by STEM. From her parent’s work in chemistry to her family’s Commodore 64 computer that was always available for tinkering, Agbaji grew up in one of the few families at the time with the opportunity to dive into cutting edge technology.
