Ashley Pearcy Buitenwerf organized the week along with the Science Museums. Each day guest scientists came to teach a lesson and host a hands-on activity, including dissecting fruits, going on a seed hunt, identifying pollinators, and matching herbivores to their feces. Julia Mata and Susanne Vogel from BIOCHANGE taught the last day, which, with a focus on poop, became the girls’ favorite, and most memorable activity of the week. The week was a success, especially since we started the week with the girls being surprised that our scientists were women and ended with them recognising they could be scientists too.
