The date for the 2018 Discovering the Scientist Within event is still being finalized. While you wait, be sure to check out the Corvallis Gazette-Times article about DSW 2017!
DSW is designed to nurture girls’ interest in the sciences by providing a program of hands-on activities paired with positive adult women STEM role models. The goal of the workshop is to introduce girls to STEM career fields in which women are traditionally under-represented We also seek to change the stereotypical perception that scientists are male and that science is ‘difficult’.
During the workshop, students will hear from a current woman scientist before breaking into small groups. These groups will participate in two hands-on activities together and spend time with current women undergraduates majoring in the STEM fields. Examples of activities previously offered can be found on the Event Information page.
