Women in Science Mixer: Are you a middle or high school girl thinking about or interested in pursuing a career in the STEM fields? Here’s an opportunity for you.  Join us on Thursday May 18th at the UNH Chase Engineering Lab to enjoy some pizza, drinks, and mingle with various UNH graduate students pursuing STEM careers.  Come hear their stories and see the exciting work they are doing to change the world and explore the many opportunities that are out there for you. The time frame will be from 2:45 ish until 4:30 ish. It will be very flexible to try to accommodate various schedules.  Students can either get picked up from the middle school and dropped off at the Case building or join Ms. Bissell and enjoy a nice healthy walk  across campus.

If you’re interested in attending please either stop by or contact Ms. Bissell sbissell@orcsd.org We want to get a sense of numbers and allergies to plan accordingly for food and drinks.
