Science Outreach Society Presents: Ladies' Lab Night
Thursday, March 8, 2018 - 4:30pm to Thursday, March 8, 2018 - 9:00pm

PSU's Science Outreach Society presents: Ladies' Lab Night, 
Celebrating International Women's Day

What is Ladies' Lab Night?
This is a chance for young women interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to meet with female researchers in PSU’s biology, chemistry, geology, and physics labs. Attendees will learn about the amazing work these women in STEM are doing while having the opportunity to make valuable connections and see what a career in STEM could look like. 

Who can come?
This event is gender inclusive. Attendees of any gender identity are encouraged to bring their non-female identifying friends and family along, however, please keep in mind that this program is organized for those of high school and college age. Since the labs you will be touring are filled with large, fragile equipment and glass, we respectfully request that you make other arrangements for your younger children to avoid any mishaps caused by extra curious little ones. Thanks for your understanding!

All attendees must RSVP by March 5, 2018 as this event will reach capacity.

What's the plan?
There will be four distinct areas that will showcase biology, chemistry, geology, and physics: each shared by women presenting information about their discipline and work. Throughout the evening, tours of select research labs - one from each discipline - will be available for attendees to choose from. Participants will have the chance to see where real science gets done, learn more about research the lab does, and go deeper into the world of a scientist. Each tour concludes with the participants receiving a ticket that they may exchange three of (from attending three tours) for a Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwich at the evening's conclusion.

Location: Science Research and Teaching Center (SRTC), 1719 SW 10th Ave
Day: Thursday March 8, 2018
Time: 4:30pm - 9:00pm
