Girls Go for Engineering

Very few women go into engineering, but WHOI scientist and engineer Anna Michel wants to change that. With funding from the National Science Foundation, Michel created the Girls in Ocean Engineering and Science (GOES) Institute, an annual program that brings a science teacher and a group of soon-to-be sixth grade girls to WHOI for a week of science and engineering immersion. The girls meet WHOI engineers, learn about salt marshes, and build their own remotely operated vehicles. Here, they get a hands-on experience of sea-level rise in the Zephyr Education Foundation’s “augmented reality sandbox.” (Photo by Tom Kleindinst, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
