In an effort to encourage young women to explore career opportunities in typically male-dominated fields, Dutchess Community College will host its 15th Annual “Math and Science Matter … Especially for Young Women” program on March 5. The program runs from 8am to 1pm and is open to girls in grades 5-8. The registration fee is $10.

The program offers hands-on workshops in science, technology, engineering, and math. Workshop descriptions and the registration form are available at www.sunydutchess.edu/msm. There will be programs for parent as well.

Check-in will take place at 8am in the Dutchess Hall Lobby, followed by a welcome in the James and Betty Hall Theatre. Pre-registration is required. The program is presented with support from Hudson Valley Credit Union.
