WIB-RTP YWIB, in collaboration with Graduate Women in Science RT, is excited to be hosting its second Spring Into STEM event on April 28, 2018. WIB-RTP Young Women In Bio held the first ever Spring Into STEM event in 2016, which lead the way for YWIB to create a national festival around Spring Into STEM.
Middle school and High school girls are invited to an afternoon of scientific activities. Fields of science represented include: chemistry, physics, ecology, epidemiology, and molecular biology. Experiments, networking, and a keynote talk will be presented by local women in STEM and volunteers from the Graduate Women in Science and Women In Bio local chapters. Each student will also receive their own lab notebook to take home.
This Spring Into STEM event will be held at North Carolina State University’s Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC), on Centennial campus, on April 28, 2018 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
