Michigan State University’s chapter of the Graduate Women in Science would like to invite your students to attend our Middle School Girls Math and Science Day. This free half-day event is an opportunity for middle school girls to try science demos and games while working with enthusiastic and knowledgeable science students and researchers at MSU. In the past, these activities have ranged from learning about CPR to the chemical reaction behind making homemade ice cream. Girls choose which sessions they would like to attend and rotate every half hour to a new session.
