This innovative Dutchess Community College program, now in its 21st year, introduces girls to opportunities in historically male-dominated fields. The program is open to girls in fifth through eighth grades; there is a $10 registration fee and online registration is required.
The program offers hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering, and math developed by DCC faculty and designed to engage young women and encourage them to explore career opportunities in those fields. Participants have the opportunity to be involved in hands-on experiments, discover the worlds of geometry, biology, chemistry, physics, and more. There are many different workshops to choose from. Girls select their workshops during the online registration.
Participating faculty come from the DCC Departments of Mathematics and Computer Science; Physical Science; History, Government, and Economics; Engineering, Architecture, and Computer Technology; Allied Health and Biological Sciences; Performing, Visual Arts, and Communications; and Academic Services.
The program includes a workshop for parents which will be a panel discussion regarding “Accommodative Services, Admissions & Financial Aid”. This free workshop will be held in the Handel Dining Room – Drumlin Hall from 9:15 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. Registration is not required.
Girls should be dropped off at 8:30 a.m. and go directly to the Drumlin Hall cafeteria for check-in. Parents are welcome to escort their children to the cafeteria and stay for the parent workshop if they are interested.
Registration will open on January 30th. Click on the links at left to view schedules and workshop descriptions, and to register. Space is limited; early registration is recommended. The registration fee of $10 for the entire morning is payable online by credit or debit card.
