Marian University: GEMS Day at Marian University 10/28/23
October 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0
I wanted to share this program with you that would be great for students as they prepare choose their pathways!
Girls in Engineering and Medical Science (GEMS) Day at Marian University is designed to get girls in grades 4-8 (or Juniors and Cadettes in Girl Scouts) interested in these STEM fields. I’m particularly proud of this collaboration between Marian and Girl Scouts of Central Indiana in an effort to show young girls that there are some really cool fields for them to pursue, especially in STEM fields.
Marian University staff will be welcoming attendees to campus for a day of tours through their Simulation Lab in College of Osteopathic Medicine and Leighton School of Nursing to show how to diagnose patients for different medical procedures (it looks like a real life Operation game… so cool!!), as well as joining a group of female engineers to troubleshoot actual projects they are working on in the E.S. Witcher School of Engineering, and last, but certainly not least, they will immerse themselves in the EcoLab, which is an outdoor laboratory to study plant and animal life.
Tours of campus, as well as all you can eat lunch is provided in the fee, so it’s a really great opportunity to show girls not only cool STEM fields, but also the possibilities that are out there at post-secondary institutions.
Here is the link to register for the event. And if there is a girl that isn’t a Girl Scout? Not a problem! We welcome them as well!
Program assistance is also available, so please reach out to me if you have any questions.
I welcome you to share this widely, but I also am happy to answer any questions you or anyone else may have!
Thanks so much!
