SyFy Sistas Special 3.02: Taking Up Space

“Follow Your heart and Follow Your Instincts” – William Tiger

The Sistas welcomed the Founder & CEO of Taking Up Space, Czarina Salido, to the show. This Special defintely shines a light on the non-profit BUT it quickly turned into a conversation between 5 grown women nerding out. We covered Alien Conspiracies, Ghosts, mothers and grandfather, little girls in STE(A)M and of course; Sci-Fi.

Taking Up Space is a non-profit dedicated to increasing Native American representation and decreasing the gender gap in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields. They empower middle-school-aged Native American girls to develop and pursue their curiosity, passion, and confidence in STEM by providing an intensive 36-week colloquium and sponsoring their trip to NASA’s Space Camp in Huntsville, AL. Founded in 2016 and based in Tucson, Taking Up Space is where fun, passion, curiosity, and STEM come together to inspire the next generation of scientists, health care workers, mathematicians, and more!
