She’s got smarts
Girls are smart. Marie Curie proved it—so did Jane Goodall and Mary Somerville. Sacramento State hopes to plant the seed of science in the minds of middle-school-aged girls during the Expanding Your Horizons conference on Saturday, October 10, from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on the university campus. Girls from sixth to eighth grade will participate in programs that encourage scientific study, including hands-on workshops about solar power, biofuel and hydropower. There also will be workshops for parents about motivating children to pursue science and math, and long-term strategies for college planning. Registration is $20 and includes a lunch.
