Each year, Physics joins scientists across OSU campus to host middle school girls for a Saturday morning of STEM activities at an event called Discovering the Scientist Within. About 120 middle school girls attend, some from as far as Hood River, Astoria, and Eugene. The girls travel in small groups of about 10 and attend one hour activity sessions in various departments, including Physics.  Undergraduate and graduate women serve as mentors/guides for the morning. There is also have a key note speaker for the girls and a separate parent session.
