    Girl Scout Mentors

    Marie S. Curie Girl Scout Chemistry Day - 2017

    The 2017 Marie S. Curie Girl Scout Chemistry Day program gives girls ages 10 to 18 the opportunity to learn about chemistry through lecture and laboratory, the careers available in various areas of chemistry and to talk, and interact with female role models who are chemists. Events will be held in three locations:

    • College of Lake County on Saturday, April 22, 2017
    • Valparaiso University on Saturday, April 29, 2017
    • North Central College on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

    VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

    We are currently looking for women chemists, or women in a related area of science, to help as mentors for this program. Mentors will meet with small groups of girls during lunch and describe their career as a woman chemist, educational requirements needed to be a chemist, and opportunities available in chemistry. We need at least 10 mentors at each site. Lunch is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. and pizza will be provided. Please contact Fran Kravitz by email at fk1456@sbcglobal.net if you are interested.
