Middle School Girls
Wayne State University’s GO-GIRL (Gaining Options-Girls Investigate Real Life) program, designed to help girls build confidence, capacity and career awareness in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines, is now accepting applications for the winter 2014 semester.
West Michigan middle school girls will get a glimpse into the careers of engineering, an occupation made up of 10 percent women, at a four-day camp at Grand Valley State University. The camp is held for female students to explore opportunities in manufacturing and technical careers.
On May 5, the Wayne State University College of Engineering hosted 38 former participants in the Gaining Options — Girls Investigate Real Life (GO-GIRL) program at Wayne State.
A University of Michigan physics professor who organized job shadowing programs for high school students and a summer science institute for middle school girls has been honored with a national mentoring award.
