MASTER-IT!

Funded by a special request to the Kansas Legislature

Master-It! is a week-long, residential summer program held every year in June. Twenty young women spend a week on the Emporia State University campus to enjoy some science, mathematics and fun. The girls explore STEM subjects throughout the program. This week-long format allows for projects, field trips and social events that a day-long program can’t provide. Students also form more meaningful relationships with the other participants and organizers than in other programs because of the extra time spent together.

Undergraduate mathematics or science majors from ESU serve as mentors and resident hall counselors for the girls. Outside speakers are brought in throughout the week to help the girls explore a wide range of STEM topics. It is a very rewarding outreach program for both the young women who attend and the organizers. The participants are invited to return to campus the following year for ESU’s spring Enhancing Your Future conference.

Preference is given to those who have not previously attended. On-site registrations will not be accepted; you must preregister.
