Sciencewomen

i-9dc84d4d9156dccb30d5f62466b4219a-swblocks.jpgIt’s Earth Science Week, and this year’s theme is Understanding Climate. So it’s the perfect time to share some cool videos of women earth scientists and how they are working to improve the diversity and representation of women in atmospheric science. Hat tip to Erika Marin-Spiotta for sharing these videos.

The first three-minute video is about the GRASP program, which gives undergraduate students a chance to do research at Storm Peak Lab in Colorado.

The second ten-minute video is on the ASCENT workshops, that aimed to develop vertical mentoring and lateral networking among women atmospheric scientists.

    Feeling inspired by all that atmospheric science goodness? Then contribute a couple of dollars to these two weather-related projects that I added from the geobloggers’ challenge: Weather Scientists II & And Now for the Weather both aim to bring weather materials and measurements to high poverty classrooms
