Girls in Science Day 2019
Friday, April 26th, 2019 was the 6th annual Girls in Science Day. A huge success by all accounts. 105 Gr. 10 girls from 23 different area schools descended to campus for a day filled of science fun. Partipants were treated to a keynote lecture by Dean Maureen MacDonald, a visit to the McMaster LIVELab, Planetarium, and a variety of hands on workshops including a square bubble challenge and a pool filled with corn starch at water. The day ended with a bang with a chemistry demonstration. Thank you to all the dedicated volunteers, especially GWiPA who organized the Day and have been fundraising with weekly bakesales for the past year. Thank you also for funding support from the Faculty of Science. The McMaster Daily News covered the day, as did the Hamilton Spectator.
