Dutchess Community College (DCC) announces its 17th annual presentation of Math and Science Matter, Especially for Young Women (grades 5-8), coming up on Saturday, March 2.
Some of the highlights of the day will include:
- Fun With Sensors: Build electronic temperature and light sensors you can take home.
- Whodunit? Practice real forensic techniques you’ve seen on TV, like fiber analysis.
- Eye-opening demonstrations in physics and chemistry
- 17 different workshops
- The 18th workshop, for all the girls, by Dr. Kathie Weathers of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, Millbrook, N.Y.: Weathers will tell the story of how she became a Ph.D. research scientist.
Girls will be able to visit the Melanie Coates Exhibit on Women in Science, on the second floor of Washington Hall. There are also free workshops for parents, one of which will help with making decisions about college financial aid.
Students may register online at sunydutchess.edu/. The registration fee of only $10 per person covers four workshops and light refreshments. For more information, contact Tony Zito at 845-431-8545 or [email protected].
