Discovering the Scientist Within

group of girls gathered in atrium

Discovering the Scientist Within is a free half-day workshop designed to encourage young women to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. 

We nurture girls’ interest in the sciences by providing a program of hands-on activities paired with positive adult women STEM role models. The goal of the workshop is to introduce girls to STEM career fields in which women are traditionally under-represented; another is to change the stereotypical perception that scientists are male and that science is ‘difficult’. 


Discovering the Scientist Within for 2015 will be held: Saturday, March 7, 2015.

Registration for DSW 2015 is scheduled to open at 8AM on Monday, Feburary 2

Beginning at that time, a link will be posted to this website that will lead you to our registration page. If you have questions, please contact us at precollege@oregonstate.edu. Thank you.
