DAY 11: STEM Weekend: featuring College of Lake County 

7th ANNUAL STEM FOR GIRLS EVENT

College of Lake County is holding an all-day event designed for school groups, scout groups, youth groups and individual girls On February 25th. The program seeks to motivate middle school and high school girls interested in STEM careers to become innovative and creative thinkers and to pursue careers in this area. Presenters include CLC faculty members from a variety of academic areas plus other professional experts and teachers.  Although this event targets girls, due to low participation by females in STEM fields, the event is open to all students, grades 7-12.

Participants can select from a variety of presentation topics, including chemistry, biology, lasers, medical imaging, engineering, nursing, math, computer aided design and more. Each session will provide hands-on, practical experiences. In addition, a STEM for Parents session will be held at the same time, featuring topics of interest for families with children interested in STEM fields.
