Girls on Ice is a unique, free, wilderness science program for high school girls that has been successfully run for 12 years in Washington State. The program provides young women with an intensive science-immersion experience through a backcountry expedition with professional glaciologists and mountaineers. In 2012, with the support of the Alaska Climate Science Center (AK CSC), Girls on Ice was able to expand in a new direction: offering a Girls on Ice experience in Alaska primarily for Alaskan girls.
