Thirty girls from Parker, Ramsay and Huffman high schools in the Birmingham area recently visited the Dauphin Island Sea Lab near Mobile, Ala.
During their time on the island, the girls explored the Mobile Bay during a two-hour boat excursion and learned about the biology, ecology and diversity of the bay’s ecosystem. They also participated in a touch lab and squid dissection, and took a tour of the lab’s Estuarium.
This program is part of local initiative, called “IMAGINE Yourself, Alabama,” and is funded through an AT&T Aspire contribution designed to expose young women to a variety of career options in the science, technology, engineering and math fields.
