The BRIGHT Girls Fairbanks academy will explore rivers surrounding Fairbanks and the salmon that live there. We will wade in the river, use authentic science tools, go out in boats, take pictures, and work in a lab to learn about salmon life cycles, navigation, and adaptations. Come prepared for adventure and fun!

BRIGHT girls instructors are UAF scientists that work in fields like biology, fisheries, and remote sensing. Participating girls will receive career mentoring and learn firsthand what it is like to do authentic science in the wet lab, the computer lab, and the field. We are excited to work with you this summer!
