Overview

Applications for Juneau are now closed. We are taking applications for the last remaining slots in the Fairbanks academy on a first-come, first-served basis.

The BRIGHT Girls program is a hands-on learning experience where girls do authentic science in the field and the laboratory.  In Fairbanks, girls explore salmon and the rivers where they live, while in Juneau, girls explore Auke Bay and the harbor seals that live there. Come join us to navigate rivers or fjords, learn new skills, have outdoor adventures, and make new friends!  As one participant said, "Bright Girls was the best two weeks of my summer vacation!"

We recently completed two wonderful 2017 summer academies! To learn more about our programs, click a location below.

In 2018, the academies will be held June 18-29 (Juneau), and July 16-27 (Fairbanks).*

*Note, these are day-only academies (no housing will be provided).
