U Chemistry Professor Statue Displayed


A collection of statues in Washington, D.C., recently featured a 3D-printed figure of U chemistry professor Janis Louie. Her doppelgänger—shown here along with Louie and her family—stood proud with 119 other statues of women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in and around the National Mall last March. The exhibit placed Louie among the largest collection of statues of women ever assembled, according to the Smithsonian Institution, and celebrated participants in the IF/THEN Ambassador program “designed to activate a culture shift among young girls to open their eyes to STEM careers.”
