Keystone Science School’s Girls in STEM: Medical Explorers focuses on careers related to medicine and medical research. Participants will take a trip to the Steadman Philippon Research Institute (SPRI) to meet female researchers and learn how their research can inform and update medical practices. They will hone in on a few different research fields like biomotion, surgery, and robotics. At the end of their day at SPRI, participants will have a special opportunity to ask these female professionals about their experience in a male-dominated industry.
Please note that this program schedule may change based on the availability of our STEM Mentors. KSS will be providing meals from dinner on Friday night to lunch on Sunday afternoon.
