Former professional skier Sarah Wilson is one of 120 women in STEM featured in an exhibition at the Smithsonian Institute. Life-sized statues were created using 3D printers.

The Smithsonian exhibit honors female leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics with their own safety orange statues. The exhibit, called "If Then She Can," features 120 women -- and six of them are from Colorado, including Jenny Briggs, the assistant dean of the Colorado School of Mines, and engineer Sarah Wilson with Tortuga AgTech.
