Meet our STEAMRole Models

SisterSMATR is a new organization of women with goals, dreams, ideals and partners who are willing ‘to reach for the stars’, some of them literally, to address the needs of and provide opportunities for young women of color in science, technology, robotics, the arts and entrepreneurship.

Perhaps as importantly, SisterSMATR is a collaborative of dynamic women artists and scientists led by renowned music pioneer and cultural icon Nona Hendryx. Together, we are not only building skills, we are helping a new generation of girls to shatter stereotypes by using culture as a gateway to achieving science and technology mastery.

It must be borne in mind that the tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace to reach for the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for.
