High School Mentor | Teacher Recommendation Form | GeoGirls 2016
GeoGirls is a geology and technology field camp for middle school girls to explore the volcanoes in their backyard, the hazards they pose and the technology scientists use to monitor them. During the course of the overnight field-based camp, high school mentors will support middle school girls as they tour Mount St. Helens, visit researchers in action, conduct a focused research project with real scientists, visit the USGS Cascades Volcano Observatory and conduct a volcanic crisis mission that builds on concepts learned throughout the week. Twenty girls entering 8th and 9th grade and four high school mentors will be selected for the 2016 program. Overnight stays will be at a remote field camp (without running water and electricity) and at the Mount St. Helens Science and Learning Center.
High school mentors provide leadership and act as mentors for a team of middle school GeoGirls throughout the week.
