READING, Pa. — Penn State Berks will host its 20th annual Careers with Math Options Conference on Wednesday, May 9, for female middle school students from Berks County and surrounding school districts.
The conference will feature speakers from Penn State Berks and the community. A wide variety of engaging and interactive workshops will be offered to encourage the young women to continue their studies in math, science, engineering, technology, finance and related fields.
This program was originally created and organized by Janet Winter, senior lecturer in mathematics, who retired from Penn State Berks in 2012. Last year, more than 300 female seventh-grade students and their chaperones attended the conference.
