Several Norphlet Middle School eighth-grade girls had an opportunity to take part in the GLAMS: Girls Learning About Math and Science conference on May 10 at South Arkansas Community College.
GLAMS' hands-on workshops and breakout sessions in science, technology, engineering and math fields are designed provide participants with fun ways to learn practical information. Nearly 200 eighth-grade girls from eight different schools attended the GLAMS conference last year at SouthArk, which had more than 20 session speakers ranging from a veterinarian to a product researcher to an environmental engineer.
GLAMS is a joint venture of the El Dorado Education Foundation and SouthArk, with financial and volunteer support from area businesses, organizations and individuals.
