Outreach

One of the goals of EWIS is to provide community building support for future generations. We have worked with local middle schools and high schools to give students a picture of what it means to have a career in science, and let them know that girls can aspire to have a career in STEM. We have visited schools during career day events and have hosted classes on research laboratory tours at University of Minnesota. To set up a school visit or other outreach event, e-mail ewis@umn.edu
