Women In Science

March 15, 2014

On Saturday, March 15th 2014 from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm at Algonquin Regional High School in Northborough, MA, middle school-aged girls are invited to attend the 8th “Women in Science & Math Conference” hosted by the Northborough Junior Woman's Club.  

Free of charge, this half-day event encourages middle school-aged girls to explore careers in the fields of science and math, and builds connections with local women who have expertise and professional degrees in these fields.

After an opening presentation, the girls will be able to attend four 40 minute interactive hands-on career workshops.  Presenters will represent a variety of fields including  Forensic Chemistry, Robotics, Architecture, DNA Extraction, Engineering and Veterinary Medicine.  The presenters will explain what they do in their occupation, share different tips on courses of study & ways to train for their profession, and provide hands-on exploration/activities.  

A luncheon will follow the workshops and offer an opportunity for the students and presenters to continue discussions in a more informal setting.
