Junior High students — girls — flocked to the BGSU Firelands College campus earlier this month for its “Women in STEM” conference. It's the fifth year the college has provided the workshops targeting female students for careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Girls from Danbury, Perkins, Sandusky, Sandusky Central Catholic and St. Peter schools attended the BGSU conference, which had four parts: animal science, epidemiology, forensic science and software development.
BGSU Firelands College brings good things to our table every day. We're glad college officials get it about encouraging females to embrace their innate intelligence and pursue their dreams. That's what college is all about, after all.
After all, when it comes right down to it most might agree: Girls are smarter than boys.
