Sixth grade girls from around the Brazos Valley can learn more about careers in mathematics and science in workshops at Texas A&M University Saturday (March 23).
Registration for “Expanding Your Horizons in Science and Mathematics,” sponsored by Texas A&M’s Center for Academic Enhancement and the Bryan-College Station branch of the American Association of University Women, will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the first floor of the Zachary Engineering Center on campus.
Sessions will help attendees increase their interest in math and science, foster awareness of career opportunities in those fields and provide them with an opportunity to meet and form personal contacts with professional women working in non-traditional occupations.
Organizers will begin checking students in at 8:30 a.m. The conference will begin at 9 a.m. with a welcome lecture followed by two career exploration workshops. The event ends at 1:45 p.m.
Participants can choose from 23 workshops that will discuss topics ranging from engineering, herpetology and ichthyology, the Internet, architecture, veterinarian science, space and aeronautics, pediatric care, and occupational therapy.
