NMS 8th Grade Girls Participate in GLAMS

Several Norphlet Middle School eighth-grade girls had an opportunity to take part in the GLAMS: Girls Learning About Math and Science conference on May 10 at South Arkansas Community College.

GLAMS’ hands-on workshops and breakout sessions in science, technology, engineering and math fields are designed provide participants with fun ways to learn practical information.  Nearly 200 eighth-grade girls from eight different schools attended the GLAMS conference last year at SouthArk, which had more than 20 session speakers ranging from a veterinarian to a product researcher to an environmental engineer.

GLAMS is a joint venture of the El Dorado Education Foundation and SouthArk, with financial and volunteer support from area businesses, organizations and individuals.
