Montana Science Center to celebrate International Science Center Day with Women in STEM Day
During this time, the Science Center will feature local women engineers and scientists who will be leading activities and experiments that represent their field of study. The featured scientists and engineers include women engineers from local engineering firms, women scientists from Montana State University, InFocus Astronomy and more.
MSC’s Executive Director, Abby Turner, states, “Creating gateways for students, particularly females, by introducing them to the extensive topics that encompass STEM, is a driving purpose of the Science Center. We recognize that an introduction to engineering and technology is about much more than just tasks, it’s about creating a lifelong interest in exploring the world with a curious mind. Through our various programs we aim to introduce those students to a wide range of STEM activities in order to spark creativity and critical thinking. International Science Center and Science Museums Day is a great time to create collaborations between those discovering science, like families, and those who work every day in a STEM field.”
Women in STEM Day is open to the public and free with admission. Families will be able to explore the science center as well as the displays provided by the guest speakers.
The Montana Science Center is located at 202 S. Willson St. For more information, please contact Abby Turner at (406)522-9087, or see our website at www.montanasciencecenter.org.
