Cleveland Museum of Natural History says
Girls can get first-hand experience with scientific careers through hands-on activities and demonstrations from 9am to 1:45pm on Saturday, March 4. Museum educators have partnered with Collections & Research professionals to present fun and engaging lessons in paleontology, veterinary medicine and environmental science.

Participants meet in Shafran Planetarium for an introduction with Executive Director & CEO Dr. Evalyn Gates, followed by a short astronomy program. Breakout groups then attend each of three programs developed around a STEM topic:

- Educator Nancy Howell, with Vertebrate Paleontology Collections Manager Amanda McGee and Fossil Preparator & Lab Manager Lee Hall, present a program on paleontology and dinosaurs.
- Educator Kathleen Marsicano and Manager of Wildlife Resources Michelle Leighty-Jones share their knowledge and insights about careers in veterinary medicine.
- Educator Erica Prange and Associate Director of Botany and Natural Areas Renee Boronka team up for an introduction to environmental science.

Lunch is provided and scholarships are available. Register before 5pm on Tuesday, February 28.
