Event Type: Field Training and Schools
When: 17 June 2016 to 28 June 2016
Organizers announce that the Girls on Ice 2016 Expeditions are now accepting applications. The 2016 program includes two expeditions. The original North Cascades expedition in Washington State will be held 10-21 July 2016, and an Alaska-based expedition will take place 17-28 June 2016.
Girls on Ice is a unique, free, wilderness science education program for high school girls. Each year a team of nine teenage girls and three instructors spend 12 days exploring and learning about mountain glaciers and alpine landscapes through scientific field studies with professional glaciologists and mountaineers.
Applicants must be at least 16 years old by the Alaska program start-date (17 June) and no older than 18 on the North Cascades program end-date (21 July). International students are welcome to apply to the North Cascades expedition. The Alaskan expedition is primarily intended for girls from Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.
Application deadline: 29 January 2016.
