Columbia College is pleased to host Math and Science Day for Middle School Girls. Sponsored by the Biology, Chemistry, Computing and Mathematics Programs in the Division of Business, Mathematics and Sciences at Columbia College. This special day offers exciting opportunities for motivated students to explore the beauty, power, and usefulness of mathematics and the sciences. Students will enjoy participating in a variety of workshops and hands-on activities. They will also learn about careers and women's contributions in mathematics, the sciences and other related fields. Students will also be able to compete in a variety of ways: in an individual written contest and a Jeopardy team competition.
