CNSE-SEFCU-Girls Inc. Eureka!® Partnership
Twenty-five young women who are part of the nation’s first Girls Inc. Eureka!® program focusing on nanotechnology received certificates for successful completion of the initial summer session at CNSE. Designed to address the crucial need to encourage young women to pursue educational and career opportunities in nanotechnology – including those from social groups underrepresented in science and engineering – as many as 150 girls are expected to participate, at no cost, over the next four years.
