Women in Natural Sciences (WINS) seeks to promote outreach programs for students in grades K-12, especially young women.
WINS students have multiple opportunities throughout the year to share their love of science with students in elementary and secondary schools. WINS students perform outreach at special educational events, mentor/tutor students in local independent school districts, and provide essential support for on-campus outreach events.
We participate in events and initiatives both on and off campus.
Beginning spring 2012, WINS began a very special partnership with Girlstart, a local non-profit which shares our goal of mentoring young women in science. WINS students have the opportunity to volunteer and also gain paid internship experience through Girlstart.
Service Abroad: Each summer WINS students travel to another country to volunteer together and experience another culture. Our 2012 trip was to Costa Rica and in 2013 and 2014 we spent 11 days in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This summer we're looking forward to traveling to Cusco, Perú and Machu Picchu. Visit our WINS in the World Blog for more photos and to follow our adventures.
