Young Ladies from Area High Schools Attend Women in Science Day at CSE

Earlier in March, CSE faculty, students, and alumni welcomed high school female students from 10 schools to participate in a day designed to introduce them to studies and careers in the sciences.

Approximately 200 high school students arrived on campus on Wednesday, March 18, 2015, to hear from alumnae who have successful careers in science.

Michelle Salese '99, a scientific liaison with L'Oreal USA; Bo Chu '11, a molecular laboratory technician with Reprogenetics; Michelle Hewitt, '03 DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine), with Tranquility Veterinary Clinic; Shannon O'Callaghan Radkovich '09 PA-C (Physician Assistant – Certified) with Summit Medical Group, and Karen-Anne Zipp '96 PA-C, RDN, adjunct instructor at CSE, spoke to the students about their respective careers and the disciplines of science they needed to study.

After the career speeches, the students were split into three groups and rotated through the labs, the health fair, and lunch. Among the hands-on activities were:

The favorite demonstration was the Seeing Eyes dogs, Linus and Albus. They were accompanied by a veterinary technician who spoke about veterinary science and why it is especially important to the Seeing Eye.

The high school students were fascinated by the college campus and the sciences programs. Chenny, a sophomore at Ridgefield High School said, "This is really cool. I have learned a lot of new things and now that I know how much fun science can be, I may consider more science in my future."
