Seeking Applicants for FREE One-day STEM Outreach Program for Young Women in Phila., PA, Apply by Jan. 22

Posted on November 26, 2019

We’re very excited to announce an upcoming Perry Outreach Program on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. The Perry Outreach Program is a free, one-day, hands-on experience for high school women who are interested in pursuing careers in medicine and engineering. Students will hear from women leaders in these fields and try it for themselves by performing mock orthopaedic surgeries and biomechanics experiments.

We are now seeking applicants for our Philadelphia, PA program. Participants should be women in grades 10 and up with an expressed interest in science, medicine and/or engineering.  We would very much appreciate if you could pass this information along to any high school principals, high school science teachers or high school students you may know.  Applicants should be directed to fill out our online application in advance of the January 22, 2020 application deadline.

Additional information can be found on our website. The application may be accessed directly by clicking here.

More information and a printable flyer for this event can be found here. Please feel free to contact Hannah Heuschneider, Program Coordinator, (hannah@perryinitiative.org) with any questions you may have.
