Eureka! is a partnership between the College of Science and Engineering at the U of M and the YWCA of Minneapolis' Girls, Inc. chapter. This program brings 8-12th grade girls into contact with professionals in STEM disciplines to get the members excited about STEM, and to keep girls active (both physically and mentally) over the Summer. More information about this event and the other programs offered by the YWCA can be found here.
All of the members of MNTTL participated in a lab tour and various hands-on activities for 8th and 9th grade girls throughout the day. A gallery of our images can be seen here.

In Minneapolis, this event is run with help from SELF International, a group that focuses on bringing STEM to underserved communities.
