BRIGHT (Budding Research Investigators in Geosciences, Habitat, and Technology) is a three year project funded by the National Science Foundation. While women and men enter careers in biology at about the same rate, women continue to be very under represented in many scientific fields, such as the physical and geosciences, engineering, and technology. BRIGHT Girls aims to build on girls’ existing science-based interests to open up new interests in some of these areas.
