Sparking an Interest in Science

(WBRE/WYOU-TV)  Today is the United Nations International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

 To help celebrate that female science-based students and staff at East Stroudsburg University helped lead some 5th grader girls from nearby JM Hill Elementary and Notre Dame in interactive S.T.E.M. Activities.  Each station provided a hands-on look at dna, physics, anatomy and other subjects.  The girls learned about soundwaves at the physics station while making noodle body parts at the anatomy station.  Those involved hope more women will look at science as a career.

“I think it’s good cause we don’t have a lot of women still in science, a lot of men are in science so I feel like women should get back into science,” Said Erin Brobusky, JM Hill Elementary School

 “Growing up there’s a lot more guys but now in college, I feel like there’s a higher percentage of women in science majors” added Ami Sanou, Jr. Biology Major


       Earlier in the day, the University welcomed high school juniors from East Stroudsburg and Notre Dame.
