February 21, 2020 9:00AM to 4:00PM EST

See the INL website for more details. 

Idaho National Laboratory will gather nearly 150 eighth-grade young women to see what their future could hold: potential careers in science, technology, engineering or math. These students will have the opportunity to interact with researchers, engineers and scientists at INL.

At a time when women are underrepresented in STEM professional fields, the program hopes to show girls how scientific and technical fields can provide exciting professional opportunities.

The event will give young women the chance to explore topics such as DNA extraction from a strawberry, cybersecurity, radioisotope thermoelectric generators, hands-on chemistry and more. The event will have 16 sessions for students and one educator workshop.
