Engineering K-12: Math Options Career Day: 7th & 8th grade girls

A total of 248 seventh- and eighth-grade girls representing 41 schools in Erie, Crawford, Potter and Warren counties gathered at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, on Tuesday, May 12, for the 13th annual Math Options Career Day, a program designed to spark the girls' interest in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. Students from Roosevelt Middle School in Erie kicked off the day by participating in the annual School Challenge Contest-making a parachute for a precious ping-pong ball.
