This one-day conference is catered to 7th and 8th grade girls to get them fired up and excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The event showcases STEM career professionals from throughout Wisconsin and faculty from UW-System. Students will engage in hands-on workshops and learn the many career paths available with an education in STEM. Attendees see UW-Stevens Point with workshops held throughout campus. Schools are encouraged to bring student groups, but individuals are welcome to attend the program.
A $40 registration fee includes exhibit exploration, a keynote presentation, three one-hour workshops, event materials, a t-shirt and a lunch.
Students have 27 workshops to choose from and will rank eight they want to attend and two they do not. When registration closes, a mathematical formula sorts students into workshops. Students typically attend one or two workshops within their top eight and are never placed in workshops they do not want to attend.
