#mycrcs Ss accepted to Horizons Program at Clarkson University

Please take time to congratulate Alexa Leyva, Lillian Forward, and Claire Benham who were all accepted into the Horizons Program at Clarkson University!

The Horizons program is designed to inspire young women to explore their talents and interests in mathematics and sciences.  Statistics indicate that women constitute considerably smaller percentages of the science and engineering workforce in the United States. Fostering the growth and talents of high quality young ladies will only increase the representation of women in these professions. 

Alongside 300 other 7th and 8th Grade females, these ladies will spend one week in July at Clarkson learning and working on various science and math related projects and presentations.  Continued participation in the coming years and college acceptance to Clarkson University will afford them a college scholarship.
