Welcome to the Math Options program, a math, science, technology, engineering, and business career day for seventh- and eighth-grade girls. This program has been designed to provide information on careers in mathematics, engineering, technology, and the sciences to young women at a time when they are making important academic decisions. Girls from schools in Erie, Crawford, Potter, Venango, and Warren counties attend the Math Options program.
On May 12, 2015, the Youth Education Outreach Office hosted the 19th annual Math Options Career Day. Nearly 250 female students from forty three Pennsylvania schools experienced interactive workshops while meeting women and men who work in STEM fields.
