Boys may attend Science Idol event
The University of Wisconsin Marathon County and its office of Continuing Education will host Science Idols for Boys, a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) event from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at the UWMC campus in Wausau.

The sessions will be taught by local professionals who connect academic learning with real world applications, inspiring the students' curiosity and encouraging them to be technology-driven, problem solvers and innovators.
Workshops the students may choose from cover chemistry, micro-biology, banking, animal medicine, astronomy, meteorology, geology, chiropractic health, engineering, information technology and paleontology. The opening session will highlight the numerous STEM careers within the agricultural industry.
Space is limited, so early registration is recommended. The cost is $10 per student (scholarships available), and includes lunch and the hands-on workshops.
