Girls in STEM - Snow Science and Safety

 

Girls will learn about snow science and a wide variety of careers within snow safety and snow science. After learning how to cross-country ski the girls will learn about many aspects of snow science including the different forms of snow grains, snow metamorphosis, and the many layers within our snowpack.

Throughout the weekend, girls will also learn about careers within snow safety and snow science from female professionals working in the field, known to the program as STEM Mentors. Our STEM Mentors not only share their career knowledge but also work with girls about how they overcame the gender gap within their career.

Why We Need Girls in STEM

According to the National Education Association, “girls who learn in all-girl environments are believed to be more comfortable responding to questions and sharing their opinions in class and more likely to explore more ‘nontraditional’ subjects such as math, science, and technology.” Read More
