Sixth Grade Girls- Science Stars
April 27th, 2009
Three St. Peter’s students, Jaené Bindom, Emma Chiaravalli, and Ciarra Reith, went to the The Spring 2009 Philadelphia Area Girls Enjoying Science Mini-Conference this month. The event was co-sponsored by Philadelphia Section of the American Chemical Society and its Women Chemists Committee (ACS WCC), the Philadelphia Section of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS), and Northeastern Montgomery County American Association of University Women (NEMCO AAUW).The goals of the event were to increase girls’ interest in science and mathematics, to provide students an opportunity to meet women working in non-traditional fields, and to foster an awareness of varied career opportunities for women. Thanks to Jaené, Emma, and Ciarra for representing our school. Thanks also to the girls’ parents and to Miss Girardi for getting the girls signed up.
