STEM Girls is Coming

Girls are really into the STEM movement. The one-day STEM Girls program at Columbia State can open their eyes to the world of possibilities.

Girls are getting into STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) at faster rates than ever before. To meet that need, Columbia State is holding a one-day STEM forum on Saturday, Oct. 22 for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade girls.
Designed to teach middle school girls about the different opportunities available to them in STEM-related careers, workshop stations will be spread around the Columbia State campus (NOT the Franklin campus). Stations include “Agriculture: Zoological Interaction,” “Human DNA Analysis,” “Lego Robot Programming,” “Chemistry Flame Tests,” “Magnetic Levitation,” “Make Your Own All-Natural Foundation, Blush, Eye Shadow” and lots more.
The day begins at 8 a.m. and continues until 4 p.m. Now through Oct. 15, registration is $25. After that it goes up to $30 (if space is available). Cost of registration includes a T-shirt, lunch and prizes.
To register your daughter, head to columbiastate.edu/stemgirls. The Columbia campus is located at 1665 Hampshire Pike, Columbia. Have questions? Contact Penelope Kellman at pkellman@columbiastate.edu or 931-540-2871, or Dr. Glenn Hudson at chudson4@columbiastate.edu or 931-540-2703.
