In this week of hands-on activities, young women will receive inspiration and support as they meet women scientists who will describe their career paths and projects. Students will conduct field research alongside WBNERR staff and visiting scientists, and use a variety of instruments and technologies to gather and record data from the marshes, fields, forests, and waters of Waquoit Bay Reserve. A highlight of this session will be the boat trip to Washburn Island and overnight on Reserve property, where the students will leave their cell phones behind as they explore local ecology and hike the trails. An afternoon lesson on shell fishing and an evening campfire will round out the day and set the stage for them to spend the night with their teachers and classmates. The session is sure to provide plenty of fun, build confidence, and offer a look at potential careers in science, technology, and engineering.
