The Careers in Science series will let girls do real experiments and sometimes get dirty the fields of archeology, astronomy, biology, chemistry geology and paleontology. These classes are a must for any girl that wants to be a scientist when she grows up or just wants to see how fun science can be. It’s real science taught by real scientists.

In our field classes – Archeology and Fossil Dig – you’ll be out in the dirt digging up real artifacts or fossils. For the other class topics, you’ll meet the people that make HMNS work and go behind the scenes to learn what they do and how they do it.
