Caught up with Nancy Scherich, winner of the most recent Science Magazine's Dance Your Ph.D. contest, also a dedicated mathematics instructor for the SIMS program, aaaaand the main feature of ISSUE03, LIFTOFF!!!!! The "Bridge" feature of each issue is someone who breaks some of the biggest misconceptions, stereotypes, or boundaries we have for scientists and engineers. Of course, we've been in the process of finding our feet for the last two issues (we = me), but I feel like Nancy is truly a BRIDGE between what we expect of a mathematician and the reality. So excited for all of you to meet her in this feature!
PS.... my original interview with Nancy was in MARCH. Dear God. That's what happens when you're a staff of one. 😩 BUT SOON. SOON. SOON. #ruleofthree#compositezine#scientist#engineer#mathematician#stem#science#math#womeninstem#womeninmath#wooo#zine#magazine#helplol

Women are strong as hell, and intelligent, powerful, inspiring, and going to take over the world. Beyond thankful to have fallen into this community of women in #LdnOnt who work to make change, while lifting as we rise. #smashingthepatriarchy#womeninstem#GreenDrinks
While I’m sad to not be in Fort Collins anymore, I am hyped that I found a job nearby. Mostly because of all my badass lady shredder friends up there who are also slaying at work— inspiring me to be stoked on my career too! The two tagged were on this ride but there’s about 10 more worth mentioning. #girlythings#nevernotcheesin#womeninstem#fortcollins#notsnow
Yesterday, women marched around the world. They stood up and demanded that their rights be protected and their demands heard. We at #WomenInTech stand by women everywhere and will continue to demand better - both within and outside of #Tech . Let’s continue to build a badass and incredibly strong community of women who refuse to give up 👊🏽 You are all incredible and constantly remind us why this movement is so important. Together we rise 💥⚡️ Photo courtesy of @erickbrocoy 📸
Hi dear scientists! I've decided to join in the fun of documenting our daily grind in the lab. This is also an opportunity for me to capture my last days of working as a research scientist before I head off to embark on a new and exciting adventure as a high school teacher (hopefully in 2019!).
Meanwhile, I am also hoping that this platform would reach out to our next generation of future scientists and get them excited and inspired into the STEM field. I personally believe that the possibilities of STEM is endless and it is crucial that these skills be passed down to sustain progress into our future.
In the mean time, I am excited to share this with you and am looking forward to meeting many other scientists alike 😊
Never stop exploring. This morning, after hearing “Why, Mama?” for what felt like the 1000th time, I snapped and said through gritted teeth “if you ask me ‘why’ one more time, you are getting a timeout”. I immediately felt bad, though my daughter appeared unfazed. My kids’ endless curiosity is a source of both pride and frustration for me. Anyone have a great response for when you want your kid to stay curious, but you JUST. CAN’T. ANSWER. ONE. MORE. QUESTION? 🤷🏻♀️ Also, this print is available in my shop. Click the link in my bio to check it out (bit.ly/exploreprint). Buy it and make me feel better about my lack of patience today 😘
