Third Annual Seeding Your Future Conference hosts middle-schoolers on campus
Middle school-age girls got to experience hands-on STEM activities during the third annual Seeding Your Future Conference on Saturday, October 29. The Seeding Your Future Conference offered popular activities including learning to read tree rings, building and coding binary bracelets and smart pendants that light up, and creating electric play dough sculptures. Dr. Jordan Mader, assistant professor of chemistry, and Dr. Sytil Murphy, assistant professor of physics, created Seeding Your Future for middle school girls because research shows that those are the years the students become discouraged in STEM fields.
