K-STATE’S GROW PROGRAM TO SPONSOR ‘HELPING HANDS’ EVENT IN FEBRUARY

MANHATTAN – Middle school-age girls from across Kansas have the opportunity
to participate in “Helping Hands” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20,
on the Kansas State University campus.

The event, offering hands-on exploration of innovative medical treatments,
is sponsored by K-State’s GROW, Girls Researching Our World program. GROW is
a part of the Women in Engineering and Science Program and introduces
middle-school girls to science, technology, engineering and mathematical
fields.

K-State graduate and undergraduate students from related fields will be in
charge of the activities that will allow the girls to play the role of
scientist or engineer while exploring how to design and create products and
research that will make life easier and healthier for people with
disabilities.

A registration fee of $15 includes event participation and lunch. For
additional information or to register, contact Susan Arnold Christian, Women
in Engineering and Science Program outreach coordinator, at 785-532-6152 or
