Do you know any female students with a strong interest in science or technology? Or students who might be unsure about science and would benefit from a positive experience with women working in science? TWISTER might be just what they need! TWISTER is a one day, hands-on science conference for girls in ninth to twelfth grade. During the conference, participants get to meet professional women working in Tennessee who are involved in science, technology, engineering, math and research related fields. Each presenter meets with a small group of 20 girls to share her profession and lead a hands-on activity with the girls. Girls attend four sessions, eat lunch at the Adventure Science Center, network with peers and presenters, and take home resources and experiences that might help to inspire them to stay in school and consider science or technology as a career. Each presenter is eager to share her excitement with you, answer your questions and give you a little taste of daily life in the workplace. Enjoy lunch with presenters and participants, take home a cool backpack filled with college goodies, and network with others sharing similar interests. You might even win a door prize or a college scholarship!
