The film was followed by a lively panel discussion – “From Stem to Steam” exploring the intersection of STEM and the performing arts—and why STEAM is vital in shaping global opportunities in the 21st century.
As panelist, Mrs. B, drew parallels between her life and Mme. Curie’s; as well as relating her (Mrs. B’s) Stem/Steam life transition from scientist to artist manager.
