BOISE -- Teenage girls explored the possibility of a career in math and science while working with world-class equipment and science professionals.

The Boise campus for the University of Idaho held their sixth annual Women in Math and Science event Thursday.

The event allowed the girls to do hands-on experiments and to work with local mentors. Mentors included UI grad students other professionals that currently work at Micron and HP.

The girls have been very excited, said program director Carol Marlowe. They've really enjoyed it, and one of the girls, today when we were talking about various things in the experiment, she said, 'Oh, this is so much fun!'

This year's event focused on avalanche studies and water-flow from rivers and streams.
