Real STEM Stories

Who powers the science that powers our world? It’s not just the kind of scientists you see in popular media; it’s all of us!  

Jayshree Seth

Corporate Scientist and Chief Science Advocate at 3M

“Science drives you to the answers, but humanities prompt you to ask the right questions.” 

Growing up, Jayshree was surrounded by STEM professionals but found herself more drawn to humanities and arts. Now nearly three decades into her career at 3M, her love of problem-solving and building context is part of what makes her a successful scientist. 

“I really think my interest in humanities has helped me be a better scientist. The human context is sometimes missing in content-heavy STEM fields, and what I’ve found is that the context has always been very inspiring for me.”
