Miss Las Vegas Visits the Startup Incubator

Friday, May 19, 2017

Miss Las Vegas, Alexis Hilts, visited the Incubator this week to talk with students about her STEM work and educational pursuits.  As a UNLV Honors College pre-med major currently studying for her MCATs, Alexis advised students about university options, scholarships, and the path to medical school. Sharing some of her advocacy work in promoting STEM engagement among women, she discussed her recently-published senior thesis on the factors associated with success in "disrupting the pink aisle." Incubator students also enjoyed working with Alexis in a quick experiment -- extracting DNA from strawberries!
