Event description: 

The mission of Girls’ Science Investigations (GSI) is to motivate empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science. University students and professors act as mentors and provide a context for exploring and understanding the various disciplines of science through hands-on activities in a laboratory environment. Through student scientific-engagement and parental awareness, GSI strives to close the gap in science found between males and females today.

GSI: The Invisible World - Did you know that everything around you is made up of tiny particles that can’t be seen with even the most powerful microscopes?  In fact, at least 50 trillion particles from outer space pass through your body every second!  In this session of Girls’ Science Investigations, we’ll learn how scientists “see” these particles.  We’ll also explore the nature of light and its many forms. Come investigate the invisible world with us!

 

Girls’ Science Investigations is limited to 6th to 8th grade girls. Pathways students receive priority, but any middle school girl can join! Lunch and snacks are included.
