Dear Home Educators,

 Curiosity, Confidence, Challenge! – a statewide science, technology, engineering, and math conference for middle school girls – will be held at Sycamore School, 1750 W. 64th St. in Indianapolis on Saturday, March 8 from 8:30-3:00.  The event is designed to heighten girls’ interest in scientific careers and help them select high school courses that will lead to success in college.  The conference features a series of small group workshops led by women whose professions include architecture, mechanical engineering, computer programming, veterinary medicine, and many more!  Registrants will select four workshop preferences from a list of 27 disciplines.

This year’s conference will also feature two special science-related programs: Animal Adaptations by Take Flight! Wildlife Education and Good Vibrations: Sound Science by Science Central. Dr. Catherine Pangan, Professor at Butler University, will lead a lunchtime theater program, Science Shake Up: Thinking About Science in New Ways.  Although parents may not attend the workshops with their daughters, they are encouraged to attend a free parent forum from 2:00-3:00 in the theater at Sycamore School.  Carlabeth Mathias, Mathias Counseling and Consulting, will present Confident Girls: Building Friendships and Handling Conflicts.

This event is open to any girl in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade.  The cost to attend is $35, which includes lunch.   Click to register online, or click to print a mail-in registration form.  Registration is limited to 400 girls and must be received by Feb. 28, 2014.

We hope to see your daughter at the conference!
