Episode Eleven:

Women in Science: Breaking STEM Stereotypes

This summer, ten high school girls from Massachusetts were selected to participate in the Earthwatch Girls in Science Fellowship Program in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. On this episode of the Earthwatch Podcast—the latest in our series highlighting amazing women in science—you’ll hear from some of the bright young women who participated in this summer program. To learn more about this fellowship program, visit our website: Girls in Science. If you would like to support future Girls in Science fellows, you can make a donation through our website. (The music in this trailer is by Blue Dot Sessions, provided under the creative commons Attribution-Noncommercial License.)


Earthwatch depends on donations—above and beyond what we raise from volunteers who participate on our expeditions—in order to deliver our global conservation mission. In fact, volunteer contributions provide only half of the total resources Earthwatch needs to sustain over 40 field research expeditions, a wide variety of educational programs, corporate sustainability trainings, and more each year.
