GROW PROGRAM SPONSORING 'SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING JAM WITH THE ARTS' IN OCTOBER

MANHATTAN -- Middle school-age girls from across Kansas will participate in "Science and Engineering Jam with the Arts" from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 2, on the Kansas State University campus.

The event is sponsored by K-State's GROW, or Girls Researching Our World, program. GROW is offered through the Women in Engineering and Science Program and introduces middle school girls to science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.

K-State faculty and students from biochemistry, electrical and computer engineering, physics, dance, kinesiology and architecture, and staff from the Beach Art Museum, will provide hands-on activities that demonstrate how scientists and engineers are involved in the creation of the arts.

Activities will include "Fun with Food," an introduction to biochemistry in cooking; "Groove-ology," an opportunity to discover the science of movement; and "Do you see what I hear?", an exploration of seeing music through the science of physics.

For additional information, contact the Women in Engineering and Science office at 785-532-3395 or visit the GROW Web site at http://www.k-state.edu/grow.
