'MAD About Nature' May 8

May 6, 2010

'MAD (Mothers and Daughters) About Nature' is an annual event sponsored by CSU's Environmental Learning Center. Girls 9-12 and their mothers/mother figures explore science together in a way that is fun, educational, and confidence-raising.

Parental support and validation is one of the strongest predictors of women becoming interested in science and science careers.

Saturday, May 8

An exploration of the sciences

Commemorate Mother's Day with us in an exploration of the sciences for mothers (or mother figures) and daughters.

Girls in the sciences

Girls are underrepresented in the sciences and research shows that parental support is one of the strongest predictors of women getting interested in science and science careers.

It's a girls-only party for girls ages 9-12 and their mothers/mother figures that will be fun, educational and confidence-raising.
