Every year, MSUM participates with NDSU in the Expanding Your Horizons Conference for 7th-9th grade girls. This year’s conference is on Saturday, April 10th, 2010, and we are looking for volunteers to present workshops for this wonderful cause! Would you be willing to donate your time to provide workshop participants with an interactive, hands-on look at a career in your field? Even if your career doesn’t directly involve math and science, you probably needed those courses to pursue your own career path.
Think about what you do in your classroom. Is there an activity you could modify into a hands-on session that could be done by a group of very enthusiastic 7th-9th grade girls? Please consider volunteering, if even for only a few hours, for this conference. There are both morning and afternoon sessions, but you do not need to volunteer for the entire day. Over 600 girls are expected to attend, and we need your support so we don’t have to turn anyone away.
