Breaking Bio Special! Miss Possible & Role Models for Girls

We’re on hiatus for the summer, but filmed a special episode to highlight a crowd-funding project that we think deserves a voice and hopefully some funding.

We talk to Janna Eaves, CTO and Co-Founder of Miss Possible, a start-up company looking to empower girls to follow their dreams by creating a line of children’s dolls showcasing female role models from STEM fields. Miss Possible is currently running a crowd-funding campaign in order to start production on their first doll (Marie Curie). Janna tells us all about what Miss Possible is and hopes to do, as well as how a couple of entreprenuerial women started their own line of dolls while finishing their undergraduate degrees in engineering.
