SET in the City on Saturday 3/28

The seventh annual SET in the City - A Day of Career Exploration in Science, Engineering & Technology for High School Girls will take place on Saturday, March 28th, 2015.  Students begin the day at Boston University, travel to area venues including Harvard, Emmanuel/Merck, Simmons, Northeastern/Wentworth, and Biogen for lunch and laboratory activities, and end the day with a keynote and college student panel at Google Cambridge. The program begins at 9:00 am and will conclude at 5:00 pm.
 
Participating students will take part in hands-on activities, hear from and interact with students and professionals in SET fields, learn about cutting edge research that will change the world, and find out how to prepare for careers in Science, Engineering, and Technology. The cost of attending is $20.00.  Interested students may pre-register for the event online at http://www.bostongirlsstem.org/setinthecity. Students who are eligible for the free lunch program at your school may attend for a reduced fee of $5.00.
 
This event is sponsored by the Boston Area Girls STEM Collaborative, which includes representatives from the following organizations and institutions: Boston University, Emmanuel College, Harvard University, M.I.T., Northeastern University, Science Club for Girls, Simmons College, UMass Boston, Wentworth Institute of Technology, and WGBH.
 
Because we are limited as to the number of students we can accommodate, we are not able to host large groups from any one school and do reserve the right to limit registration to ten students per school. We would appreciate it if you would post our flyers and bring the program to the attention of any students who would benefit from this unique opportunity to meet women studying or working in Science, Engineering and Technology and learn about careers in these fields.
