What does a ‘summer of STEM’ look like for Marion Leary?

Fresh off our month of covering up-and-coming leaders of color in Philly’s social impact space, this month is all about technology and we’re looking forward to talk with those who are working in and using tech to make lasting social change.

Take Marion Leary, for example — a co-organizer of the first March for Science in Philadelphia this past April and director of innovation research for the Center for Resuscitation Science at the University of Pennsylvania.

Oh, and of course, a Geek of the Year nominee.

So far this summer, we can see that Leary has been busy with her tech startup ImmERgeLabs, which uses virtual reality platforms to help improve training and education for emergency response situations. Check out the recent public showing of how it’s being used to simulate CPR situations:

Curious as to what else Leary is doing this summer?

Keep tabs on @theSTEMsquad from Aug. 5 to 11, where Leary will be hosting a “Twitter takeover” of the femme-identifying STEM community account.
