On March 9 Penn State Fayette campus had a field trip for Freshman girls. UHS had 32 girls attend. The name of the field trip was “Future 4 U”. The main purpose of the field trip was for freshman girls to have career exploration in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Penn state provided the opportunity for girls to be able to explore fields in areas that are mostly male dominant.
While they were there they did many fun activities and spoke to different professionals in those fields. One of the lady’s there had actually graduated from Uniontown. It was inspiring for the girls to see someone from their environment that succeeded in life.
While they were there they participated in many fun activities. One of the activities they had sheep hearts and they observed them in a science aspect. Another activity was building replica cell phone towers out of marshmallows and uncooked spaghetti noodles this was to show the engineering aspect. Lastly they did a test were they listened to each others heart rate then simulated a smokers heart rate.
