Astronaut Jan Davis will be the featured speaker. Davis, a graduate of Huntsville High School and UAH, is a veteran of three space shuttle missions. The girls will also get a chance to talk with local female engineers and scientists.

Check-in begins at 11, followed by a street fair. Workshops topics include forensic science, medicine, aviation, marine biology, veterinary medicine and more. The $18 fee includes lunch, and advance registration is required. Workshops will be available for parents and teachers, too.
