Over the weekend of January 23 and 24, Sarah Perry of the Chemical Engineering Department collaborated with Anne Gershenson of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (both from M2M) and UMass Amherst Pastry Chef Simon Stevenson in a Girl Scout outreach event in Holyoke. The event attracted 11 girls, ranging from second to fourth grade, from the Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts. It was billed as “the most OOEY, GOOEY, fantastically SLIMEY program yet.”
