LU Hosts Math for Girls Day
The Association for Women in Mathematics organized similar days across the U.S. to honor Sonia Kova-Levsky, the first woman to receive a doctorate in math.
Lincoln University invited girls in grades 8-12 to encourage them to continue studying mathematics.
Topics included aeronautics, nuclear engineering and geographic information systems.
"People think all you can do with a math degree is teach a lot of the time," said Donna Stallings, program director. "So we wanted to give them some real practical things they can do with a math degree and show what women are doing in different careers."
Lincoln University plans to host the event again next spring.
