Unique, tuition-free wilderness science expeditions for young women

Inspiring Girls Expeditions interweaves science, art, and wilderness travel to inspire future leadership, curiosity, confidence, and success.

 

Each year we select expedition teams of 8-9 teenage girls and 3 instructors to spend 12 days exploring and learning about a remote wilderness environment. Through scientific field studies with our team of professional scientists, artists, and wilderness guides, you will build critical thinking skills, gain self-confidence, and make lasting friendships.
