MOUNT VERNON — Sponsored by a donation from the Knox County Career Center, hosted by Mount Vernon High School and coordinated by Bonnie Schutte, the 2010 Knox County Girls in Science Day featured CSI-like activities. Sixty girls from grades six, seven and eight participated in those activities and listened to an address by keynote speaker Dr. Jennifer Ogle, Knox County coroner.

    I read girls now account for a large majority of the students in college & professional schools. Do boys need some help here? Why or why not? Is the school funding this girls’ science day discriminating on basis of gender? Any men in on the decision to fund this?
