Events aimed at fostering kids' interest in science will take place at ESF in April. The Girls' Summit and Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day will engage children in a variety of activities to promote STEM learning.

The Girls' Summit is set for April 13. "If your fifth through 10th grade daughter, niece, sister or neighbor, would like to explore even more ESF-fostered careers, plus a few more, registration is now open," said Heather Engleman, instructional support technician and event organizer.

For more than 20 years, ESF has provided a school-day of hands-on career exploration for kids ages eight to 11 in conjunction with Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day - this year set for April 25.

"We have a few more details to work out, after which registration materials will be posted," said Engleman. "Registration will require parental permission, but every eight to 11-year-old with an ESF student or employee connection -parent, sibling, grandparent, friend, etc.- is welcome on a space-available basis."

Inquiries about registration, volunteering as a group guide or other responsibilities during or in advance of either event should be directed to Engelman. Organizers are also looking to borrow glue guns for the April 25 event. Those with glue guns to lend should also contact Engleman.
