During the Spring semester, the Women in Science organization participated in a variety of community outreach events. These women reached out to local Girl Scout troops to participate in World Thinking Day, educating young minds about genetics and neuroscience. In continuing their reach for educational opportunities for Girl Scouts, the organization assisted the troops in earning their Girl Scout Science Badge by conducting experiments. Further outreach programs included assisting the Neuroscience Program's Brains and Books at the Morgantown Public Library and participation in the Girls on the Run 5k.
