Girls on Ice (http://girlsonice.org)
is a unique, FREE, wilderness science education program for high
school girls. Each year a team of 9 teenage girls and 3 instructors
spend 11 days exploring and learning about mountain glaciers and
alpine landscapes through scientific field studies with professional
glaciologists and mountaineers.
This year we are offering 2 expeditions!
Girls on Ice NORTH CASCADES is the original expedition in Washington
Open to all girls age 15-18 (yes, international girls can apply!)
July 21 – August 1, 2013
Girls on Ice ALASKA is geared toward Alaskan and Pacific Northwest
June 21 – July 2, 2013
***Girls on Ice is
not a reward for past good grades or academic achievement,
it is an
inspiration for future academic success and leadership.***
We are able to provide this program TUITION FREE to the girls
through small grants, gifts from individuals, and generous support
from the National Science Foundation, the Alaska Climate Science
Center, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
