Girls In Science is going on WKU on April 16th. This is a great program and registration is still going on! Cost is $5 and covers lunch, classes, and a t-shirt. (Scholarships are available too if needed) You can check out the info at: http://www.wku.edu/wise/girls-in-science-day and get registered.
On April 16, 2011, the 10th annual Girls in Science
Day will be held on the WKU campus. We are proud
to offer this exciting opportunity to young women
from 4th to 8th grade.
This year’s “Girls in Science Day” will consist of
talks, demonstrations and hands-on activities for the
girls to give them the opportunity to explore various
topics in math, technology, engineering and science. It
is also a chance for participants to talk to teachers and
scientists conducting their own important research at
Western Kentucky University and find out about the
many career opportunities currently available.
The cost will be $5 per participant to help in offsetting the cost of the materials, lunch and t-shirts.
Scholarships are available to students with financial need. We are unable to accept purchase orders
for registration fees. Registration form and payment must be received on or before April 10th.
The day consists of a morning and an afternoon session. During the morning session, girls will
attend 3 fun classes in several areas of science, mathematics, and engineering. This year, there are
13 classes from which to choose. In the afternoon, you will be engaged in a spectacular Chemistry
Show. Parents/Guardians are invited to attend the Chemistry Show.
I am enclosing the registration forms and a list of classes. Both forms MUST be completed and
returned. Students will be attending three classes but should choose their top five classes in the
event that some classes fill up. The total number of participants will be limited to 200 girls, so please
sign up early. You will be notified by email regarding receipt of your registration so please print
clearly on the registration form.
Feel free to make copies and pass the information on to interested girls. If you have any questions,
please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can’t wait to see you at this year’s event!
