Saturday Workshops

Flyer showing the theme for the 2019 Saturday Workshop, It's Elemental, Dr. Watson! The acronym GROW is written as if part of the Periodic Table.

It's Elemental, Dr. Watson!

2019 is the International Year of the Periodic Table, to mark 150 years since the discovery of the periodic system! But the elements are important not just in chemistry - they are integral across the world of STEM! Learn more about the science, technology, engineering and math that builds upon that important discovery made 150 years ago. 

Join us for a Saturday full of hands-on STEM activities as we explore the science, technology, engineering, and math, and the infinite possibilities a career in STEM can hold!  All students in grades 6-8 are welcome. Activities will be led by K-State faculty, staff, and students and will take place between 9am-3:30pm on K-State's campus in Manhattan, KS.

What is the Goal?

The mission of GROW is to increase girls’ interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.

Who Should Attend?

This event is intended for students currently in the 6th—8th grades. Students can come on their own or with friends from their school or community.

What Will We Do?

You and your group members will participate in hands-on activities led by Kansas State University faculty, staff, and students. Each activity will focus on the science, technology, engineering, and math that inspire headlines and breaking news around the world. Lunch (included in the registration fee) will be two slices of pizza, a piece of fruit, cookie and water. Contact kawse@ksu.edu if special accommodations are needed.
