This program is an effort to overcome a history of limited participation by women in careers involving the sciences and mathematics and is focused, therefore, on developing career interests among junior high girls.

Conference Goals:


Increase young women's interest in mathematics and science.


Foster awareness of career opportunities for women in mathematics and science related fields.


Provide students an opportunity to meet and form personal contacts with women working in traditionally male occupations.


Alleviate isolation of young women who are interested in science and mathematics.
