LA GRANDE, Ore (EOU) – The anticipated Girls in Science event is returning for the eleventh year at EOU and participants will be investigating a very realistic environmental mystery on Saturday, Oct. 27.
With activities centered in the university’s state-of-the-art Science Center, girls in grades six through eight will work in teams to figure out what caused a hypothetical fish kill in a nearby stream and then propose a solution.
Their investigation will run the gamut from chemistry and biology to anthropology, archeology, math and computer technology.
Members of EOU’s Chemistry Club play a key part in the program. Their participation in this and other outreach activities recently garnered the club an outstanding award from the American Chemical Society for the 2011-12 academic year.
Girls in Science is made possible by EOU, the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center (NEOAHEC), Soroptimist of La Grande and the Richland Chapter of the American Chemical Society.
