We need YOU!

Please join us Saturday March 7th, 2009 for the 11th annual Girls' Science Day! We need your help to encourage today's middle school girls to consider careers in science. Come have a great day at PCC while you:

  • Help register the girls

  • Lead a tour group
  • Assist in a workshop

To participate, contact Teri Trendler at or 626-585-7675.


Marie Curie was a pioneer in the field of radioactivity. She was the first female awarded a Nobel Prize.  She earned advanced degrees in both math and science, and is the only person to have received Nobel Prizes in multiple subjects (the first in physics and the second in chemistry)!  Her work is the basis of the X-rays used in today's diagnostic medicine. What if she had never thought about studying science?!

The Natural Sciences Division of Pasadena City College wants to encourage local girls to consider joining the next generation of female scientists.  Every spring middle school girls are invited to the campus to participate in hands-on science workshops. Our goal is to help the girls experience the wonders of science. Want to be involved?

Girls' Science Day is a free event, open to 6th through 8th grade girls in the Pasadena Unified School District.  Please go to the following links for the history of this event or more details about the day.
