Girl Scouts at NCAR
Changing the outlook on science, one girl at a time
Girl Scouts at NCAR also known as Climate and Weather: The Two Go Together is a program that allows Girl Scouts in Colorado to spend one day at the National Center for Atmospheric Resaerch in Boulder, CO learning about weather and climate, performing hands-on activities related to these topics, and interacting with female scientists. Girl Scouts earn a Science & Nature fun patch for their participation in the program.
Next event: Saturday, April 19, 2014
This event is open to Juniors and Cadettes.
Research has shown that girls benefit from:
- An informal, single-sex learning environment
- Role Models
- Hands-on inquiry based activities
- Non-competitive atmosphere
