Girl Scouts will get a look at college-level science at UM-Dearborn Aug. 14-15

DEARBORN---Detroit-area Cadette Girl Scouts will get to explore careers in science this week in a campus program coordinated by biology Profs. Marilee Parsons and Judith Heady. The program, which runs August 14-15, is called "Lab Coats and Microscopes."

Cadettes are Girl Scouts enrolled in middle school, aged approximately 11 to 14. In the program, the Scouts will gather first-hand experience in college-level laboratory and research techniques.

Parsons and Heady worked together on science day camps for Girl Scouts held on campus in the early 1990s. Parsons, who was a Girl Scout as a youth, has served the Detroit-area Girl Scout council as an advisor on career and educational issues in the sciences.
