This spring, we are celebrating the achievements of women in paleontology by inviting girls in Grades 3–6 to join us for a special “girls in science” version of Adventures in Nature Camp called How Girls Museum. This experience is a two-day camp held at the La Brea Tar Pits. A treasure trove of fossils that tells us a good deal about the distant past, the La Brea Tar Pits is a great place for girls to pursue their interest in paleontology by learning from our stellar female scientists.
Let’s encourage our girls to explore their futures as scientists by discovering the past in a camp that is designed to provide a safe, supportive environment for girls to pursue their interests in science.
This experience uses the research and collections of the Museum as a jumping off point for exploration and adventure. Campers will explore the paleontological work that happens daily in the middle of Los Angles at the La Brea Tar Pits. Campers will also have the opportunity to connect to female scientists and peers who share their interests!
