Girls on Ice is a unique, FREE, wilderness science education program for high school girls. Two teams of 9 teenage girls and 3 instructors spend 11 days exploring and learning about glaciers and the alpine landscape through scientific field studies with glaciologists, ecologists, artists, and mountaineers.
One team explores Mount Baker, an ice-covered volcano in the North Cascades of Washington State. The other team sleeps under the midnight sun exploring an Alaskan glacier.
