The daylong event is held for girls, grades 6-9, to increase interest in and foster awareness of careers in math and science.
This year's theme is "Building a Better Future." At the conference, girls will participate in hands-on workshops, a special group activity and a career fair. The conference also provides young women opportunities to meet and interact with positive role models who are actively engaged in math- and science-related careers.
For parents, there is a two-and-a-half hour workshop on college planning, academic requirements, financial aid and transferring to a four-year university. Registration is required. Parents may register online or by mailing in the registration form.
