There are still a few spots available for the annual Girls in STEM Expo, a free event hosted by the Mohawk Valley Community College Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) faculty group from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, March 21. But hurry — the deadline to apply is Friday, March 6.
The expo is designed for local middle school girls to spend the day with MVCC WISE faculty and student volunteers, exploring the areas of science, engineering, technology, and math through exciting hands-on activities, demonstrations, and challenges. Activities will feature multiple disciplines, and participants will be able to create their own predictions, run experiments, and test out their results in physics, chemistry, and biology. The day will be topped off with fun engineering competitions. To register, visit tinyurl.com/mvccstem.
