The Michigan State University Graduate Women in Science Mid-Michigan Chapter invites you and your students to attend our virtual 2021 Girls Math and Science Day!

This event is an opportunity for middle school girls to work with enthusiastic and knowledgeable scientists at MSU while they complete four 25-minute STEM-themed activities! Some examples of our past activities include learning to code, extracting DNA from fruit, and using math to study butterflies. The event will also include a keynote address from one of our amazing MSU faculty members! 

This year, our event will look a little different. We will still be offering hands-on activities to our participants, but our participants will be interacting with our activity leaders over Zoom as they complete these activities at home. Supplies needed for each activity will be included in the registration form. 


Registration information:

Registration opens on Friday, February 12th! Parents can register participants by filling out the Registration Form below. All participants are required to have a chaperone in the vicinity throughout the duration of the event. Please have the chaperone's name and contact information ready for registration. 

Confirmation emails will be sent to all participants containing the relevant Zoom information and any relevant updates. There will be a brief check-in process starting at 1:00pm on Saturday, March 20th. At that time you will receive the event schedule and some additional event information.

Please note: if you and/or your participant(s) are unable to find/obtain necessary supplies for these activities, please contact us at We are happy to work with you to accommodate any requests!
