TASC Talk Introduces Harris Center Lab Girls Program

Susie Spikol of the Harris Center for Conservation Education in Hancock presented a TASC Talk on “Lab Girls,” an afterschool program that is designed to help middle school girls stay engaged with the sciences.

The program brings women mentors with careers in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) into the classroom to share their stories and their science with Great Brook and South Meadow School girls.

Each week, members of the Lab Girls meet a different role model and then have a chance to experiment with the tools of her trade.

ConVal High School students with an interest in science have a community service opportunity to help the middle school girls navigate the hands-on experiments and additionally benefit from guest speakers during the TASK Talk series at ConVal.
