Top female scientists will be visiting Ocean Institute to mentor the next generation, inspiring middle and high school girls towards futures in science and technology. Each day-long program includes hands-on experience in the Ocean Institute’s labs and aboard their research vessel, the R/V Sea Explorer. One-on-one interaction with female scientist role models motivates girls to embrace their intelligence and pursue careers and degrees in the sciences.
Girls who love science, or are just beginning to show an interest will come away empowered to explore careers in fields such as nautical archeology, veterinary science, oceanography, and conservation.
