This Saturday April 2nd, Harbor Ridge Middle School is hosting a Career and Pathway Expo for 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls in the Peninsula School District. This event promotes careers in science and math for girls so they open their mind to opportunities in such fields and see where these careers can take them.

This event will be held from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm, and will consist of hands-on experiments and rotations of career workshops related to science, technology, engineering and math. The goal of the workshop is to show girls a glimpse of some amazing jobs they can pursue and inspire them to work towards their goals. In years past this event has created great friendships between the middle schoolers, high school helpers, and their teachers.

Peninsula High School DECA has teamed up with the school district to help make this event happen. DECA’s goal was to get as many high-schoolers involved with the event as possible to inspire the younger girls who attend, and to see for themselves what these careers can do for them. This is also an awesome way for the high-school volunteers to practice leadership skills and get community service hours.

If you are interested in getting involved, contact PHS DECA student and leader of the CAPE workshop Talia Bickert at 253-514-0095.
