PAGES(TM) Program

In light of the evolving situation surrounding COVID-19, we have made the disappointing decision to cancel the Spring 2020 PAGESTM event scheduled for Saturday, April 18th. The health of our students, volunteers, and scientists, as well as our at-risk family, friends, and neighbors, is of utmost importance to the PAGESTM team. Due to the cancellation, we are offering students who have already registered for the Spring 2020 mini-conference the opportunity to attend our Fall 2020 mini-conference. We are currently at work scheduling both our Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 events and will be in touch with that information when it becomes available. Please check our website at http://www.PAGESprogram.org for updates. We’d like to thank all of the volunteers who had already signed up to work with us in April, as well as the teachers who have promoted our event to your students. We look forward to working with all of you at future PAGESTM events, but until then, please be safe!
