Program Description

Learn about the exciting career opportunities that are available for women interested in STEM. The hands-on, interactive career sessions will give you some ideas for exploring careers that involve problem solving and experimentation, putting things together and taking them apart, and using what you learn in your studies of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Registrations will not be accepted after March 15.  This program accepts 100 participants.  Registration includes breakfast and lunch.

Teachers/Class Groups Only:

If you are bringing a large group of students and would like paper registration to send home to the students, click HERE.  We do not accept paper registrations. The information still needs to be registered online prior to the registration deadline or the program being filled.  We cannot hold spots while you collect paper registration and there is a risk that the program can fill before you are able to enter the names.  This program fills quite quickly.

online registration for chaperones

Click HERE to register. Chaperones can attend at no cost. They are required to pre-register and stay in the building for supervision during the event. Registering as a chaperone does not register the students.  That needs to be done separately. Breakfast and lunch is available to all chaperones attending the event.
