DLM6888 Lauren Aschenbrenner, 11, above, and Katie Obluda, 13, collect evidence at a mock crime scene while participating in the Chemistry and Crime workshop of the fifth annual Girls Exploring Science, Engineering and Technology event at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colo. Tues. April 10, 2007. Chemistry and Crime was conducted by Maj. Michelle Rauch, an assistant professor at the United States Air Force Academy. She led the girls through a series of chemistry experiments that used the clues left at the murder scene to determine who committed the crime. It was one of 50 workshops dealing with a wide variety of scientific fields ranging from robotics to forensics that the 1,400 sixth and seventh grade girls that participated in the event could choose from. The event is initiated by the Rocky Mountain Section of the Society of Women Engineers with the intent of encouraging girls to pursue careers and interests in science, technology, engineering and math. According to information provided by the SWE women make up only 10 percent of the nation's engineering workforce.(DARIN MCGREGOR/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS)
