Expanding Your Horizons – Beckley, WV 2011
I was recently part of a crack squad of women who descended upon Beckley, WV* to show middle school girls the Way of the Scientist.
*Except for the ones who were already in Beckley, WV.
Expanding Your Horizons is an outreach program organsied by the Association of Women in Science that encourages girls to stick with maths and science through middle and high school; not through lecturing in the print media, as I am doing here, but by going out and showing them how cool science is. We had Nano-Materials, and Genetics of Dragons, and goody-bags from NASA! Yeah!
In this case, I was acting as Official Photographer, and Leader of the Lost to Distant Classrooms.
