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 26 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 18. But enrollment is limited to the first 175 girls. It’s known to fill up and workshops selections are filled first come, first served. So don’t wait to register.
