View original article
ALBANY -- Starting next summer, a class of middle- and high-school girls will enter a five-year program to learn about nanoscience careers, thanks to a new partnership between the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering and Girls Inc.
The initiative will be Girls Inc.'s first Eureka! program in New York -- a national initiative established by the nonprofit female empowerment organization to introduce young women to opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
