Girls in Ocean Science (GiOS) Conference – Postponed
Saturday | September 12, 2020 | 9AM-4PM
The Girls in Ocean Science (GiOS) Conference will connect influential, female ocean experts with the next generation of ocean ambassadors. Our hope is to encourage and empower young women to explore maritime and ocean science-based fields of study and careers.
Sponsored by Steinmetz Family Foundation
Our goal is to bring together bright minds to create idea-focused conversations and hands-on experiences that foster learning, inspiration, and wonder. During our inaugural GiOS conference, female experts will share their lives, careers, and interests with local high-school students.
Participating student scientists will spend the day conducting research in labs and at sea aboard Condor Express. Young women who love science or are just beginning to show an interest will come away empowered to explore the field further. Meet Our Experts:
The conference includes light snacks in the morning and a full lunch.
Space is limited to fifty (50) high-school students (must be in high school in September 2020)
