If you are looking to encourage your 5th – 8th grade daughter(s) to explore a future in science or math, take note.

The Northboro Junior Woman’s Club is again holding a STEM conference for girls Saturday, March 28 from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm.

The conference will be made up of an opening presentation, interactive workshops and informal discussions over a luncheon. To encourage interest and success in the science fields:

The presenters will explain what they do in their occupation, share different tips on courses of study & ways to train for their profession, and provide hands-on exploration/activities.

The event is free and welcomes Southborough  students – so I really encourage girls to make the most of this opportunity.

Forms are due by March 17. But enrollment is limited to the first 130 5th – 8th grade girls. And workshops selections are filled first come, first served. So don’t wait too long to register.

The “hands-on career workshops” planned for this year are:

  • STEM conference flyerArchitecture
  • Environmental Health & Safety Engineering
  • Medical Doctor
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Robotics
  • Veterinary Medicine
  • Science Teacher
  • Chiropractor
  • Research Scientist
  • Material Scientist
  • Nursing
  • Surgeon
  • Forensic Chemistry

This is the 9th time the Junior Women’s Club has held the mentoring event. (It was previously titled Women in Science & Math Conference.)

Thank you Northborough Junior Women’s club for organizing such a worthwhile event. And for free! I hope they are still holding these until my daughter is old enough to participate.
