Center to engage girls in scienceWritten by Admin
SciGirls, a science program for girls ages 9 to 14, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. the last Tuesday of the month at the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute starting in September.
“SciGirls is a groundbreaking new attempt to interest girls in science with fun, hands-on activities,” said Christi Whitworth, PARI education director.
SciGirls was developed by PBS to transform the way girls look at science, technology, engineering and math. There will be different topics each month, with the first one on tracking light pollution through the Great Worldwide Star Count.”
