Project Title & Description
Women in Science Institute
The Women in Science Institute addresses career development by introducing girls to the various careers in science. Students are exposed to various scientific disciplines and participate in three days of science investigative activities, conducting water quality experiments, using nets and fishing rods to determine what type of organisms live in the bay and attending lectures by marine biologists and ornithologists on conservation and ecological issues. Field visits include the Shehan Audubon Sanctuary to learn about the process leading to environmental stewardship.
