Science Girl Saturday becomes Destination: Discovery in 2014!

Inside the ExploraDome.
This year, the Fergus Falls AAUW is teaming up with the Dakota Horizons Girl Scouts, M-State AND the Bell Museum of Natural History to put on our biggest STEM Saturday event ever for 5th and 6th grade girls in Fergus Falls!

Destination: Discovery is Saturday, April 5, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Minnesota State Community & Technical College--Fergus Falls.

Girls will visit several stations to learn more about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math by trying out cool experiments.

The stations will include the Bell Museum of Natural History's ExploraDome--a portable planetarium that will transport girls to the realms of farthest space!

The event also include lunch.
