More than 300 seventh- and eighth-grade girls will be on campus tomorrow (Nov. 5) to explore careers in the STEM disciplines – science, technology, engineering and math.

Women in STEM Day provides them the opportunity to hear first hand from successful women professionals about the array of jobs and educational possibilities open to them, have some fun with hands-on activities and hear why, yes, it really is important to take all those math and science classes in high school.

From doing a rapid strep throat diagnosis to conducting a vehicle crash reconstruction with the State Highway Patrol to designing magazine layouts with the College of Technology, the students will have a full day.

A good recruiting event for BGSU, the program has proven very popular over the years. Registration for Friday's event is full, according to Continuing and Extended Education.

Admissions tour guides are helping to host the students, and Freddie and Frieda Falcon will greet them as they arrive. Graduate students in marine biology will give the keynote address at breakfast.
