Athena Brensberger, is an advocate for science and the arts. When in University, Athena conducted research on stellar proplyds in the Orion Nebula. She investigated the dynamics of bow shocks caused by stellar winds incident on the proplyds from hot stars in the nebula, and learned the Python programming language in order to begin rudimentary modeling of such shocks. She presented her work at the CSI Student Symposium of Research, Scholarship, and Performance in April 2011. She pursues the sciences through communication, giving talks at schools, creating content for the Astroathens channel on YouTube and so much more while pursuing her career as an international model.
