On February 26th from 8am to 4pm, Argonne National Labs will host 8th grade girls at their site to explore careers in engineering. The day will include:
* motivational presentations by Argonne's female staff
* a tour of the Argonne facility
* hands-on engineering experiments
* a team challenge
* small-group time with a female engineer mentor
Girls are selected by lottery and our goal is to make sure that as many Chicago 8th grade girls with an inkling of an interest in engineering/STEM know about this and apply to participate.
Please spread the word! And know that Argonne does not provide transportation, so you might need to support problem-solving with girls, teachers, and schools around that if they "win the lottery".

Thanks for helping us spread the word! And come meet our colleagues at Argonne National Lab at their activity station at Destination:Chicago on January 24th at Jones College Prep!
