MATH AND SCIENCE DISCOVERY WEEK FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL GIRLS AT AQUINAS COLLEGE - Mar 12, 2004

March 12, 2004 - GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN (March 8, 2004) - Building robots, designing computer programs and making 3-D movies are a part of the creative curriculum being offered at the Aquinas College Discovery Week, a hands-on math and science camp for middle school girls ages 11 to 13. Discovery Week will be held from Monday, June 21 to Wednesday, June 23 and from Monday, July 12 to Friday, July 16. The girls will work with Aquinas math professors and five female math majors on the robots and other projects. The fee is very affordable at $50 for the entire week of activities including room and board. Scholarships are available.

The purpose of Discovery Week is to show the girls that they are capable of taking math and science in high school and college. Aquinas is excited about offering this program because over half of its math professors are females. The Aquinas' staff knows how to challenge and energize young women plus help them develop confidence in their abilities.

The camp needs at least 30 girls; families from moderate income neighborhoods are strongly encouraged to apply. For more information, please call Dr. Michael McDaniel at (616) 632-2147, mcdanmic@aquinas.edu or go to http://www.snipurl.com/4V3a.
