Girls' Science Night Out
A Girls Get Science event brought to you by The Great Adventure Lab.
Curious to learn more about the latest Mars Rover? Is there life in the universe? Want an opportunity for your daughter to meet a woman scientist from NASA?
Come join us on Tuesday, October 9th from 6-8 pm at the Argyle Park Activity Building, 1030 Forest Glen Road, Silver Spring, MD 20901.
Dr. Sabrina Feldman, physicist, NASA
Our guest speaker for the evening, Dr. Sabrina Feldman joins us from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California where she is the manager of JPL's Planetary Science Instrument Development Office. Her contribution to Curiousity, the latest Mars Rover, was her work on an X-ray diffraction instrument to study Mars mineralogy. She is the former Deputy Director for the Center for Life Detection, so she knows a lot about astrobiology and the search for life.
The event includes hands on activities: build a spectroscope, plot a planetary rover landing; a presentation by Dr. Feldman and followed up by quiz show and PRIZES!
Registration is open to girls from any school, grades 3 to 6.

Tickets are $10 per girl.
All proceeds are donated to the Maryland Housing Partnership to support their afterschool programs.
