Monteray Bay Aquarium: Young Women in Science (YWS)

Thanks to readergirlz and Little Willow, I found out about a program for teen girls over at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The Young Women in Science (YWS) which may be of particular interest to our readergirlz still in middle school:
This week-long, summer day-camp is designed to get young women excited about and involved in science, the ocean and conservation. Through a variety of hands-on field activities, we strive to increase their knowledge and to spark a personal connection with the natural world that will lead them to become future stewards of the ocean. Kids get the opportunity to explore ocean habitats by joining in activities such as surface scuba diving, boogie boarding and kayaking.

We aim to serve young women regardless of primary language or economic background. We offer three camps in the summer that are conducted in both English and Spanish. Young women entering grades 6, 7 or 8, who reside in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties, are eligible to apply.
Send an email to teenprograms@mbayaq.org to find out about the YWS program, as well as other Monterey Bay Aquarium teen programs.
