We interview Dr. Carol Lynn Curchoe, scientist, STEM educator, and the founder of 32ATPs, a clean energy biotech company. Carol is also the former Utah State Science Advisor and—in true #HumanVennDiagram form—helps run a stage plot app for professional musicians. We dig into the importance of failure in science and entrepreneurship, the tyranny of jargon, and how you (yes, you!) can get involved in public service. Plus: cloning cows, kitchen chemistry, and a baby!
