Inspiring Girls Expeditions is accepting applications through January 19, 2018 for free summer science and wilderness expeditions for girls ages 16 to 17. The Inspiring Girls trips of 2018 will include Girls on Ice Alaska, Girls On Ice Cascades, Girls in Icy Fjords, and more. All Inspiring Girls programs help girls learn about the natural processes related to glaciers as they develop critical thinking skills and explore the connection between science and art. Participants design their own experiments and work as part of a team. Girls participate in these programs tuition-free through small grants, gifts from individuals and support from the National Science Foundation, the Alaska Climate Science Center, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Visit the Inspiring Girls Expeditions website for more information, and to learn about the application process.
