“Discover Your Future,” presented by AAUW Lansdale Branch in conjunction with Montgomery County Community College, is a day of interactive workshops conducted by outstanding women leaders and role models in biology, chemistry, technology, engineering, physics and math. Designed for girls in grades 5-8, the program creates a fun environment to inspire girls about opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
“Discover Your Future” will be held on Saturday, March 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at MCCC’s Central Campus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell for a nominal charge. Register online .
Parents are invited to attend a free optional session that includes keynote speaker, Morgan Rollins, a former soccer goalkeeper for Tower Hill High School in Delaware and a junior bioengineering student at Temple University. She is the founder of TemPO (Temple Prosthetics and Orthotics), and she recently received a $4,000 Creative Arts, Research and Scholarship (CARAS) Program grant through Temple for prosthetics research.
“Discover Your Future” strives to overturn the stereotype that girls are less capable or not interested in STEM subjects. The program is a great opportunity for girls to imagine themselves in STEM careers.
