Girls in Ocean Science
September 11 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Girls in Ocean Science Conference (GiOS) connects influential ocean experts with the next generation of ocean ambassadors. Encouraging and empowering young women to explore maritime and ocean-science-based fields of study and careers. Bringing together bright minds to create idea-focused conversations and 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 a local vessel. Young women who love science or are just beginning to show an interest will come away empowered to explore the field further.
