Women's Outreach in Materials, Energy and Nanobiotechnology will be held on

About the Event

WOMEN Outreach is a one day event for female high school sophomores to explore the world of science and engineering. Eligible 10th grade female students are invited to participate in a variety of hands-on science activities lead by current Cornell graduates and undergraduates. The event, which spans morning and afternoon, also includes an optional campus tour and financial information for parents (see previous presentation on careers in chemical engineering and on college admissions and financial aid). At the end of the day, students and parents attend an informal Q/A panel to ask current undergraduates and graduates about their experiences being a science/engineering student. Breakfast, lunch, and dessert are provided!
