STEM Steps 2018 welcomes area high school girls to campus

Area high school sophomore and junior girls will be at Ohio State Lima for the fourth annual Ohio State Lima STEM Steps program from 9:00 a.m.-1:45 p.m., Mon. and Tues., March 12-13, 2018. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.

STEM Steps is an enriching and exciting day filled with hands-on activities in various STEM fields to encourage and stimulate an interest in science. Students will also learn the role of women in STEM fields and see how they can impact the world with STEM education.

The keynote speaker for both days is Dr. Manu B. Aggarwal, a phlebologist with the Vein Care Center. STEM Steps is made possible by the generous support of INEOS.
