SciGirls Quest Day 1, MagLab

SciGirls Quest 2019 - Day 1 Introduction and Mars researchSciGirls Quest 2019 - Day 1 Introduction and Mars research

SciGirls Quest is off to an exciting start after a fun-filled first day! Our amazing girls had the chance to get to know each other today, participate in a little team building, and get ready for our adventures over the next two weeks. In addition to all of our start-of-camp business, we rolled out the camp research project,  Mission to Mars: Designing a Sustainable Colony of the Red Planet. Our girls will be working in teams to research Mars and, together with their experiences over the next few weeks, they will design a self-sustaining colony for future Mars settlers, some of which may come from this very group of girls! We had a visit from Steffanie Sillitoe-Kukas of FSU and the MagLab who is researching Mars’ geology through meteorites. We also met with Kim Kelling and Suzanne Smith of WFSU who will be helping our girls to communicate scientific research to the world. Looking forward to the next two weeks!
