On March 23, 2013, Zoomdojo's "Branching out with STEM +Art (STEAM) Careers" brought to New York City a unique and energetic career event comprising a panel of four eminent practitioners in various science and art fields, who spoke about their personal journeys as their careers evolved in fields that ranged from genetics research to environmental issues to making art with Nobel Prize winning scientists. The panel speakers were Brigitte Griswold, Dr. Dolan Sondhi, Ryu Goto, and Steve Miller. The moderator was Nicholas St. Fleur, out-going Science Editor of the Cornell Daily Sun. The event began with an energetic and rousing Taiko Performance by YAMATAI, Cornell University’s Taiko Drummers; and wrapped up with an evocative violin solo by Ryu Goto and a one hour networking reception.
