Description

Do your girls love science? Give them an amazing opportunity to meet world-renowned conservationists.

This unique program is targeted for girls ages 10-14 years and will include a chance to speak with the conservationists, participate in a short program on selected animals and experience a behind the scenes tour. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and spaces are limited.

Participants will have the chance to meet two ocean conservationists — Dr. Amanda Vincent, 2021 Indianapolis Prize Winner and Danni Washington, 2021 Indianapolis Prize Gala co-host.

Dr. Amanda Vincent

Among the first to study seahorses underwater, Dr. Vincent helped put the world’s 47 species on the global conservation agenda. Initiating the first seahorse conservation project, her programs have led to 35 no-take marine protected areas, the first global export controls for marine fishes and a bold new citizen science venture, iSeahorse.

Danni Washington

The first African American woman/woman of color to ever host an American science TV show, Danni Washington is the co-founder of “The Big Blue & You,” a certified scuba diver, co-creator of “Sea Youth Rise Up,” a motivational/inspirational speaker, a science communicator, digital influencer and overall lover of nature.

What parents are saying:

“We were very impressed with the fact that there is a Girls in Science workshop series specifically for young girls. My daughter was over-the-moon when she met Dr. Marker. Something she will always remember for the rest of her life. She wants to be just like her someday. Thank you for providing such a wonderful opportunity! Your Zoo is amazing!”

​”It was beyond expectations and beyond fantastic…a truly treasured experience, memory and learning experience.”
