K-STATE'S GROW PROGRAM SPONSORING EVENT IN SUPPORT OF EARTH DAY

MANHATTAN -- In recognition of Earth Day, middle school-age girls from across Kansas will have the opportunity to explore such topics as wind energy, recycled concrete and use of plants to clean up pollution by participating in "GROWing Green" Saturday, April 10, on the Kansas State University campus.

The full-day event will offer hands-on exploration of solutions created by scientists and engineers to help protect the environment. K-State graduate and undergraduate students from related fields will be in charge of the activities that will allow the girls to play the role of scientist or engineer while exploring how to design and create products and research that will benefit planet Earth.

"GROWing Green" is sponsored by K-State's GROW, or Girls Researching Our World, program. GROW is a part of the university's Women in Engineering and Science Program and introduces middle-school girls to science, technology, engineering and mathematical fields.

A registration fee of $15 includes event participation and lunch. For additional information or to register, contact Susan Arnold Christian, outreach program coordinator for the Women in Science and Engineering Program, at 785-532-6152 or visit the GROW Web site at http://www.k-state.edu/grow.
